band students play their instruments in a concert


A rich tradition in music is reflected in the number of activities available for student participation. Four choral groups, four bands, a chamber orchestra, and a hand bell choir offer group musical experiences. Vocal and instrumental lessons offer opportunities for individual advancement.

We believe that music is a gift from God. We use that gift to reflect His glory, and to touch the lives of those around us. We believe and have seen the power of music to comfort, inspire, and to give expression to our deepest emotions. We have made use of music in its noblest calling as a bearer and servant of the good news of life and salvation in Christ. For all of those reasons music has been, and will remain, close to the heart of Bethany.
