At ANC there are many ways for our students to pursue musical interests.
There are formal venues, such as Choral Ensemble—it meets during sixth period and appears on a student's transcript. With Choral Ensemble, students sing at a number of performances throughout the academic year, from Arts Nights to the annual Glencairn Christmas Sing. There is also Instrumental Ensemble, which gives students a chance to develop their musical skills or gain new ones.
Informally, students with musical interest can try out for our Spring Musical. This, one of our most popular events at ANC, gives students a chance to shine while enjoying camaraderie of fellow students and being challenged to perform in front of sold-out audiences in the Mitchell Performing Arts Center.
Musically inclined ANC students can also join one of our campus clubs and try out for telegrams, one of our most unique events at ANC. In this semi-annual event, each of our four campus clubs delivers a cappella singing telegrams to each of their brother and sister clubs. Students take the event seriously, rehearsing for weeks in advance.
