Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, cover it with choc'late and a miracle or two?
TCS Drama Director Mrs. Kate Marino and TCS Music Director Mr. George Heath and TCS 1st-3rd Grade music and drama enthusiasts can. As can The Candy Man (a.k.a. Willie Wonka), and you can see it all take place this fall during TCS's musical performances of "Willie Wonka Jr."! Shows are November 15-17, 2018. Will you find a golden ticket?
COMING THIS SPRING … FIDDLER on the ROOF Jr.!
Last Spring’s “Thoroughly Modern Millie” performances by TCS students in Grades 4-8 were sweet mysteries indeed! Such talent! Singing, dancing, acting, set design and stage crew, sound and lights! Bravo TCS Music and Drama Department! WOW! WOW! WOW!
Recorder, Guitar & Violin Classes offered this Fall with the wonderful faculty @ Concordia Conservatory!
The Chapel School is proud to offer our well-rounded students in 2nd through 8th grades many opportunities to thrive and grow in the Fine Arts and Music. Over 75 students are learning to play instruments in our in-house after school TCS Band Program. Individual and Small Group Lessons for woodwinds, brass and percussion start in 3rd Grade, and then 4 full First Year, Second Year, Third Year and Advanced Bands get together weekly to rehearse for Christmas and Spring Concerts.
The Chapel School also offers wonderful opportunities for students who use their voices as their instruments, including: Prep Choir for 2nd-3rd Graders (No Auditions), Select Choir for 4th-8th Graders and Chamber Choir for 7th-8th Graders. Being that the Select and Chamber Choirs are often the face of TCS in the community (Annual Appearance at Shea Stadium/CitiFIELD singing the National Anthem at NY Mets Baseball Game, Wartburg Home, Reformation Celebration at Princeton University, Bronxville Rotary, et. al.), students must audition to be part of those groups. The Chapel School Select Choir recently recorded, produced and released a professional quality 10-Year Anniversary CD.
Finally, The Chapel School has an un-paralleled Drama Program for students in 3rd-8th Grades, which is made up of Fall Drama Club (open to all budding thespians) and now a Fall Musical for Grades 1-3. And, of course, TCS's spectacular Spring Musical Productions for Grades 4-8 (Auditions Required), past performances of which have included: Annie Jr. (2012), Oklahoma Jr. (2013), Music Man Jr. (2014), Guys and Dolls Jr. (2015), Wizard of Oz Jr. (2016), Seussical the Musical (2017) and Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. (2018).
At a time when many schools have deemed Fine Arts and Music as "expendable", The Chapel School continues to view those programs as "expandable".
