|St. Bruno is in the midst
of a musical renaissance! The Pre-K -2nd
students sing echo songs revolving around
the Christian holidays of Christmas &
Easter and also Valentines Day, Thanksgiving,
Halloween, etc. In addition to singing,
they play rhythm instruments and circle
games. 3rd-6th grade students learn music
for Mass (hymns and acclamation) to enable
them to participate in sung prayer. 4th-6th
grade students are learning to play recorder,
which also introduces them to written music
notation. All students have an opportunity
to perform for other students by singing
at Mass or at other performances. In 2012
we had a recorder assembly and a special
production of theThree-Piggy Opera starring
the 3rd grade. For the upcoming school year,
we will expand our musical offerings adding
Chorus to the schedule, after-school piano
lessons (private 1-on-1 instruction), and
a msuic and movement club for PreK students.
