McCall Middle School    

All students at McCall study music. The students may choose from band, chorus, orchestra or general music. In addition, students may audition for the after-school groups! There are no fees for any of the music courses, including band and orchestra.


After School Groups

After school groups available to McCall students include Jazz Band, Jubilation Singers and Heritage Singers. Jazz Band is an audition based group and these students are required to be enrolled in band or orchestra during the day. Jazz Band performs jazz pieces and plays at all band concerts as well as In the Mood Band Dance in May and Town Day Jazz Performance. Jubilation Singers (auditioned) and Heritage Singers (non-auditioned) are after school choruses directed by McCall Chorus teacher Lynn Shane.
