Welcome to Gretna Middle School's Vocal Music Program!
GMS offers a wide variety of opportunities for students to be involved in music:
All 6th and 7th graders take one trimester of Music Class.
At the end of their 7th-grade year, students can suggest what elective classes they would like to take during their 8th-grade year. Music electives include:
Since music classes are only a small part of the school year, students are encouraged to participate in one or more extracurricular choirs at GMS:
Another goal of the GMS music program is to prepare students for the Gretna High School music program! As 8th graders start to register for 9th-grade classes, they may feel overwhelmed by all of the choices and wonder if there is room in their schedule for music. In order to understand the benefits of continuing to include music in their schedule, I've asked some current GHS students Why Should I Sign Up for High School Choir?
Advertisements and flyers for music opportunities outside of GMS are frequently sent to me. I will post them here as I receive them. Feel free to look into these Additional Music Opportunities on your own.
Every year, GMS 8th grade music and drama students are invited to attend a Broadway production at the Orpheum theater in Omaha! This year's Orpheum trip will be to see Disney's The Lion King on Saturday, April 25 at 7:30pm. 8th Grade Music/Drama Trip Form
