In the Lower School, performing arts are introduced through music class and through the choir, which presents the Lower School musical each year.
Music instruction begins with exposure to different instruments and forms of music. From PreK-3 to 5th grade, students attend music classes and learn a variety of songs in chapel. Students who join choir practice after school for one day a week in the fall. In the spring, practices increase in frequency as preparations begin for the spring musical, a full-scale musical performance. Students perform on the stage in the Henton Chapel on the Cade campus in late spring. Past performances include Willy Wonka Kids, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland Jr., Seussical Jr. The Lion King Jr. and Annie Jr. In recent years, more than 60 students have taken part in the productions.
