Last Chance is a new feature that will provide you with upcoming deadlines that you may want to know about.
Belmont Public Schools do a lot of things well and one area that annually wins praise within the school district and from outside observers is the district-wide music program.
Beginning in the elementary schools with instrument instruction and singing, students are exposed to music and performance – Belmont is one of the few school districts in the country that mandates musical participation through three of the four Middle School grades – leading to the opportunity to move to musical groups at the Chenery Middle School and and finally to participate in one of 13 outstanding ensembles at Belmont High School ranging from concert orchestra, symphonic band, choruses, chamber singers, a cappella choirs and jazz ensembles for both singers and musicians.
This week are two of the final concerts of the year at both the Chenery Middle School and the Belmont High School:
• Thursday, May 10, the Chenery Middle School 7th and 8th Grade Band Concert will take place at the school at 7 p.m.
• Friday, May 11, enjoy one of the most anticipated concerts of the year: Belmont High School's "Night at Pops."
