Music Opportunities for BMS Students

One of the many great opportunities that students have at Beverly Public Schools is the ability to participate in the Music Performance Ensembles: Band, Chorus and String Orchestra. Each group performs several concerts throughout the year, plays for many school and civic events, and even takes exciting field trips to different locations for competitions and community outreach. Middle School students who join the Music Performance Ensembles do not need any prior musical experience- it is never too late to join!

Band, Chorus and String Orchestra are all considered academic courses that occur during the school day, so students earn a grade for participating. Students have the ability to participate in up to two different Music Performance Groups at Beverly Middle School.

If your student is interested in becoming a member of any of the Performing Ensembles, please fill out the Google Interest Form to sign them up. To find out more about the instruments available to your student in the Band and String Orchestra groups, please visit the Interactive Recruitment page we created (you can visit the link or you can visit the attachment to this email). 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us:

Alexis Carr, 5th-8th Grade Band ( Band Website
Nick Krafka, 5th-8th Grade Band ( Band Website
Kaitlin Nguyen, 5th-8th Grade Orchestra ( Strings Website

We look forward to hearing from you! 

Musically yours,
The Music Performance Ensembles Teachers
