Music and Performing Arts

The Lindenhurst music department has always strived for excellence in music education and the musical development of every student. Elementary school students begin exploring music through the use of simple movement and Orff instruments such as xylophones and drums in their music classes. The exploration continues with singing and playing recorders. As students get older, they have the opportunity to participate in performing groups such as band, chorus, and orchestra. Lindenhurst music students are also encouraged to further their musical development by competing in NYSSMA festivals every year. Outstanding students participate in district-wide select performing groups such as the All-Lindy Chorus, Band, and Orchestra.

Music education does not stop when the student reaches the secondary level. Besides continuing classroom music training, young musicians can perform in the Middle School Band, Chorus, Orchestra and other select performing groups such as the Middle School Select Chorus, Jazz Band, and Chamber Orchestra. These groups perform at a high level and have been recognized with numerous awards and honors in and out of district.

Lindenhurst High School offers the opportunity for students to further develop their musical abilities. The performing group students have an opportunity to perform in Orchestra, High School Chorus, Concert Choir, and Concert Band) and several select performing groups such as Songbirds – female vocal ensemble and Odyssey- mixed vocal ensemble, Marching Band, Jazz Band, and String Chamber ensemble. Students can study music simply to broaden their education or prepare for musical studies on a collegiate and conservatory level. The High School produces an annual musical that allows students to showcase their talent.

The Theater Arts class offers students the opportunity to learn about the many areas that are involved in theatre arts. The theatre department, vocal department, dance department, and art department teach Theatre Arts collaboratively.
