Grace Notes Program
 

The "Grace Notes Program” is designed to mentor our grade school area youth in drama, music and dance. It is open to all area schools and is growing steadily each year. We now have all ages walking through the hallways of HSHS sharing and uniting in the Spirit of Music!

If you are interested in becoming a Grace Note, please complete the GRACE NOTE INTEREST APPLICATION and let me know if you are a singer, dancer or musician! Our Kickoff party will be at Storybook Land this year.

SPARTAN MUSICIAN NEWS!

 
Congratulations Dominic Mevoli '18 of EHT, for having been selected to perform in the Annual Side By Side Concert with the South Jersey Area Wind Ensemble (SJAWE) at Stockton University April 24, 2017. High School students sit "side by side" with the accomplished musicians of the SJAWE having an opportunity to not only be mentored, but to perform challenging pieces in a full concert setting! Nice going, Dominic! 
 

2016 CHRISTMAS CANTATA

Congratulations to our vocal and instrumental students on a magical performance last night. The telling of the Christmas story is the most special part of Christmas and our Spartans were amazing!

SPARTANS JOIN THE SICILIAN TENORS FOR SCHOLARSHIP BENEFIT!

 
Congratulations to our vocal and instrumental students who performed with fellow music students from all six high schools of the Diocese of Camden at the Investors Bank PAC Saturday night. These amazingly talented young people performed two famous works accompanied by a liturgical dance provided by the AC Ballet - and were then joined by the Sicilian Tenors for a Christmas melody! Great Job, Spartans! #StandUpSpartansForMusic
