Instrumental music is available to students in grades 4 and 5. The Beebe Band performs several times throughout the year, including a winter concert, a combined band/orchestra/chorus spring concert, and the fifth grade band festival. Throughout the year students are working on performance music as well as achievement lines and scale requirements. Additional performances are occasionally scheduled for special events.
All interested 4th and 5th grade students are able to participate in Beebe's Orchestra program. Students receive one small group lesson and one full ensemble rehearsal each week. Interested 5th grade students may also audition to participate in District #203 Honor Strings, which meets once a week from mid-October through February.
Third Grade Band/Orchestra
All third grade students at Beebe have the opportunity to view an instrument demonstration every spring. Based off interest, some students may wish to try different instruments before making their decision on what instrument to play. These opportunities will be held:
- Instrument Demonstration: Thursday, April 16, 8:30-9:15 AM
- Instrument Try Out: Thursday, May 14, 8:30-10:30 AM
