P.K. Yonge is committed to providing performing arts opportunities to every student on campus through academic classes and extracurricular activities. The performing arts program at P.K. Yonge offers opportunities for all students to gain experience and develop skill in the areas of instrumental music, vocal music, dance, and theatre.
For insight into how the performing arts support brain development, watch the TV20 news story below on how P.K. Yonge combines the arts with science research in the spring musical, Little Shop of Horrors.
Academic classes are open to all students and cater to diverse backgrounds and skill levels. Beginning in elementary school, all students participate in music classes during the school day. All middle school students may take vocal performing arts and band, and the high school performing arts program offers vocal, instrumental, and theatre classes.
For current class offerings in performing arts, please visit our Class Pages (Middle School – Additional Course Options, High School – Performing Arts).
Our diverse performing groups include a superior-rated marching band, award-winning choral ensembles, a high voltage rock band, dynamic musical and innovative theatre programs, comprehensive K-12 vocal programs, and an interactive elementary Orff Schulwerk chorus.
We value our relationships with community performing arts organizations and prepare our students to be musicians, performers, and lovers of music after graduating from our programs.
We would love for you to join us!
