Newport Music Program

Welcome to the website for the Newport Music Program. The Band and Choir programs at Newport Middle and High School strive to enrich and improve the lives of students through various musical experiences. We view students as accomplished learners. Everyone has the opportunity to grow and develop a deeper understanding of music. 

Many opportunities present themselves in our Newport community for students to get involved both as musical performers and audience members. Our goal is to support as much musical growth as possible. Under "Upcoming Events" found below, all Newport Music Program required events are in bold, and extra opportunities will be listed in normal font. Text written in blue will link to a schedule for the event.

Please visit our YouTube channel to see concert footage and subscribe!
