TMS Choirs welcome all levels of musicianship and interest; from beginning vocalists, to mixed intermediate and advanced ensembles. 6th and 7th Grade choirs are introduced to all genres of vocal music while 8th grade choirs refine their musicianship and travel to competitive festivals in the spring. Jazz Choir is an after-school activity where all ages can join by auditioning with the director. Jazz Choir meets from 3pm-4:15 on Tuesdays from late October to early April. All choirs participate in after school performances and optional solo and small group festivals. TMS choirs perform at school assemblies, community celebrations where all students can showcase their talents.
Beginning Band is for students who have never played an instrument, and Intermediate Band is for students who had band in the 5th grade. All grade levels of band students perform at least three evening concerts a year, and many enter an optional solo and small group festival.
Both 7th and 8th graders will march in local parades, play at judged band festivals, assemblies, and combine with the high school to perform in the all-district concert. In addition to band during the school day, after-school band programs include Stage Band and Jazz Band. Meeting once a week after school for specific amounts of time, these bands play jazz and rock songs and perform at concerts.
Choir at Tolt is an elective for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. The choir performs at concerts, assemblies and local festivals as a way to showcase student talent.
