Performing Arts

Thriving on Stage & in the Classroom

Student performing artists make exciting discoveries in music, theatre, and video at LHPS.  Their lives are enriched as they collaborate on performances and projects. Through this collaboration, student performing artists develop creativity, critical thinking skills, patience, trust of oneself and others, and imagination. Students use these experiences and skills to explore a deeper understanding of themselves, others, and the world around them. With these keen insights, our students can change the world.

Lower School students are given a beautiful menu of Music, Drama, Chorus, Orchestra, Band and Video Production. In Middle School, students may continue cultivating experiences through classes in Drama, Musical Theatre and Junior Thespians, Chorus, Concert Band, String Orchestra, Dance Technique and Video Production.  Finally, Upper School students intensify their arts education with multi-levels of Dance Technique, Drama, Stagecraft, Marching Band, Jazz Band, Symphonic Band, Symphony Orchestra, Intro to Music Theory,  AP Music Theory, Recording Studio and Broadcast Journalism. 

The Performing Arts offer vast opportunities for students to hone their talents. Examples include: 

  • Collaborate and perform in the annual Veterans Day Celebration. 
     

  • Perform with the Junior and Senior Thespian Troupes at District and State Thespian Festivals.
     

  • Participate in the Florida Bandmasters Association’s Marching Festival as a member of the Marching Highlanders. 
     

  • Audition to perform in one of the prestigious Florida Music Education Association’s All-State performing ensembles. 
     

  • Explore Band, Chorus and Orchestra in 4th—6th grades.
     

  • Perform in Band, Chorus or Orchestra concerts presented each year at Christmas time and in the spring in the HCCA and Bourne Chapel. 
     

  • Participate in the Sixth Grade Drama Production elective class.
