Mr. Paul McKeever conducts the saintly sounds of the St. Apollinaris School Music Ensemble also known as “The Band”. Interested students from grades 3through 8 can participate. The Band provides an opportunity for students who are reasonably competent on their chosen instrument to experience ensemble playing. In addition to playing music together, students learn to work collectively, help each other, improve their discipline, and perfect technique. The Band meets after school each Thursday until 4:00pm. Band members are responsible for their own instruments and most attend outside music tutors.
The band enhances several school gatherings, such as the annual Christmas Program, a performance during Catholic Schools Week, and the 8th Grade Graduation Ceremony.
