Music Department

Chorus, Theatre, Percussion Ensemble & Instrumental Music

Cook-Wissahickon offers a large and active music program that includes two choirs, a theatre program, percussion ensemble, and orchestra/band.

The Music program at Cook-Wissahickon has created several successful, after school programs, including two regionally recognized choirs, a percussion ensemble, and a theatre program.

Instrumental music provides lessons for the violin, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and various percussion instruments.

In addition to performing regularly at school functions, Cook-Wissahichon music students have been chosen as members of the highly selective All City Elementary/Middle School Chorus, Band and Orchestra. Our former students now perform in some of the city’s finest high school orchestras and bands at CAPA, GAMP, Central, Masterman, and Girls’ High School.

Please check the music website for information regarding the school’s music curriculum and co-curricular opportunities (e.g., choir, theatre, bucket drumming ensemble, band, and orchestra) and special music department fundraisers.  There is a special page for Choir, Bucket Drumming, Theatre, and Band and Orchestra Information.
