Lancer Band and Recorder Ensemble
Other opportunities in Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac School’s Theater Arts Program include the Lancer Band and the Recorder Ensemble. These groups are also self-funded and require a minimum number of members. The Director of the Mater Dei High School Music Academy, Marianne Wightman, instructs both the band and the recorder group.
Band: The director provides weekly instruction to the beginning, intermediate, and advanced students in grades 4-8 on Fridays during 0 period from 7-8 AM in the Fine Arts classroom. In this way, there is no conflict with any other SJDL School extra-curricular activity. The instructional fee of $350 for the entire year also includes additional optional evening instruction from 6:30-8 PM on the MDHS campus. In the spring, the students play several selections for their parents at the school’s annual Spring Concert.
Recorder Ensemble: The band director also offers weekly recorder instruction to students in grades 2-4. This is an excellent program for elementary students who wish to learn to play a beginning instrument and music theory. The group meets on Tuesday afternoons from 3:15-4:15 in the music room. The instructional fee for the entire year is $175 and a minimum number of students is required to maintain the program each year. The group performs at Showtime, as part of the Christmas Caroling Concert prior to the Christmas Liturgy, and again at the annual Spring Concert.
