Music

Finding our voices through music.

Whether you are a novice or advanced musician, you can choose from a rich variety of musical classes and ensembles.

Throughout the school year, you will have opportunities to develop the art of performance, expand your repertoire, and serve the community by making music an integral part of campus life.

Every campus celebration, from small gatherings to all-school events are made memorable by the inclusion of both vocal and instrumental music groups. Whether you are a seasoned singer or want to test your vocal abilities, Walker’s offers many ways for you to share your voice. Choir, a capella, gospel, and rock band are all groups that perform throughout the school year both on and off campus.

Instrumental groups, including African drumming, orchestra, hand bells, and more provide ways for all students to engage in creating music and performing both on campus and in the community. Each year, instrumental and vocal students compete in local and regional competitions including being named champion of a regional a capella competition, KO’s Wyvern International.
