Skillful Performance: Glorifying God

At Bellevue Christian School, students have several opportunities to be involved in Performing Arts. With instrumental ensembles, choral ensembles, and theatrical productions utilizing each level of creative skill, students are able to participate as a beginner, or be challenged as an advanced performer.

The Performing Arts faculty value the correlation between participation in the arts and brain development, and teach students how to skillfully use their musical gifts and talents to bring glory to God.

Instrumental

Instrumental ensembles perform a variety of music, such as traditional marches, overtures, movie music, sacred music, and small ensemble works.  Students experience the reality of God in music, express their love to Him through music, improve their instrumental skills, and will strive for excellence on a daily basis.   

Ensembles include:

5th Grade Beginning Band

6th Grade Band

JH Concert Band – consists of both 7th and 8th grade students

Choral

The Bellevue Christian School Choral Department is dedicated to teaching the musicianship and technique of singing for the purpose of glorifying God.  Students involved in a choral ensemble will immediately experience the love and camaraderie that takes place during rehearsals.  We believe music is a gift given to us from God, and, as singers, it is our responsibility to create and cultivate choral music.

Ensembles include:

Junior High Choir – 7th-8th grade students

Aurora – open to 9th-12th grade female students

Mannskor – open to 9th-12th grade male students

Theatrical

Theatrical productions at Bellevue Christian School provide a dynamic, invigorating, and educational experience for everyone involved: cast, crew, and audience. Twice a year BCS seeks to produce a play or musical which represents good literature, raises important questions, and provides an exciting theater experience. Our aim is that students may learn to approach dramatic literature with both understanding and appreciation, within a Christian frame of reference.
