Band & Choir

H.J. Cody Music Program endeavours to achieve the development of musical skills, knowledge and perception, as it contributes to the total development of the individual. Music is accessible to all, and as students become sensitive to its expressive elements, they may develop insight into human feelings. Music education should begin at an early age and continue to encourage creative expression through performance, listening and composition.

Our current program hosts a concert band, concert choir and guitar program delivered for grades 9 through 12. Our band has 52 members and choir hosts 57 vocalists. The band program is able to be delivered during the school schedule. Choir is held after school to allow all grades to attend at once.
