SUPPORT TAM HIGH MUSIC
The Music Department at Tam High provides a rich and diverse environment for student musicians to learn about and create music in many forms. The Music Department boasts of many award winning ensembles and has a long history of musical excellence. Students have the opportunity to play in a full Symphonic Orchestra or a String Orchestra; to sing in the Chorus and ChamberChoirs; or to play in the Wind Ensemble or a Jazz Big Band with smaller Jazz Ensembles or smaller rock oriented guitar and percussion Ensembles; or to learn a new instrument in the Beginner/Intermediate band.
These ensembles perform locally as well as travel, most notably to New York City to perform regularly in the Heritage Festival.
To achieve this high level of performance the Tam High Music Department uses a team of very fine professional musicians who participate in classes and performances. These guest artists are present in the classroom several times a week and are generously funded by the Tam High Foundation.
The Tam High Music Department also provides 18 scholarships that the students compete for through an audition. These scholarships reward student musicians for hard work and allow the student musicians to enhance their music education.
The Tam High community and the public enjoy the fruits of this labor throughout the school year with our many performances. We count on the support of of our THUMB members and the generous support our audience and friends. There are many ways to support Tam Music. You can join THUMB, attend our concerts, support our annual Phonathon, and even make a donation today on this webite.
We're working to get 100% parent participation in THUMB
