“Sing and Play the Troubie Way” – It’s not just a slogan on our pencils, it’s a way of life for our music students at SFHS! From traditional ensembles such as the Concert Choir, Chamber Singers and Orchestra to the more contemporary Show Choir, A Capella and Jazz Clubs, St. Francis has much to offer promising young musicians. Our award-winning performance ensembles represent our school in concerts, festivals and community events throughout the year. Our department strives to build a community of passionate and committed musicians who continue to support the arts in their college and community life.
