Welcome to Gretna Middle School's Vocal Music Program!

Gretna Middle School’s vocal music department strives to provide a welcoming environment for all students to experience, learn, and appreciate music through a variety of opportunities.

All 6th and 7th graders take one trimester of Music Class. Performance dates for this class:

1st Trimester Concert - Tuesday, November 3, 2020 **Please note this is Election Day**

2nd Trimester Concert - Tuesday, February 2, 2021

3rd Trimester Concert - Monday, May 3, 2021

At the end of their 7th grade year, students can suggest what elective classes they would like to take during their 8th grade year. 8th grade music electives include:

Musical Men's Chorus

Music Creations World Drumming

Mixed Chorus Broadway Bound

Women's Chorus Malcolm Prep

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:

GMS Choir

Show Choir

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 Frozen on Friday, March 26, 2021 at 7:30pm.
