The Yorkville High School Music Department strives to provide students the opportunity to grow as young musicians as well as develop an awareness and appreciation of the arts. We have offerings that cater to the most novice musician as well as those who plan to pursue music as a career. We believe that all students should have an arts education and the ability to create, feel, and inspire.
The Yorkville High School Music Department serves more than 500 students daily through three orchestras, six choirs, four concert bands, two jazz bands, chamber strings, volunteer marching band, pep bands, three general music courses, AP music theory, and numerous chamber ensembles. Students in performing ensembles may elect to take the course as a weighted grade by completing the weighted grades component program. Students in YHS Music regularly attend contests & festivals and work with world-renowned performers, clinicians, conductors, and composers.
