This past year the MS Chorus & Concert Choir went to MSVMA State Choral Festival, receiving an “Excellent” rating. The Symphony Orchestra and Concert Band qualified for MSBOA State Band & Orchestra Festival, and received a “Good” rating.
Students attend all MSBOA (Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association) & MSVMA (Michigan School Vocal Music Association) events.
OHMI offers band, orchestra, & choir from beginning to advanced levels, guitar class, elementary music class, and young strings (Suzuki-style) .
No previous music experience is required for beginning level classes, or for the choirs (except Advanced Choir – that is audition only).
Beginning band & orchestra will teach your student to play the instrument – how to hold it, techniques, reading music, scales. etc. Music reading & theory is taught in class.
