Find Your Harmony

Our goal is to explore the universality of music and the effect it has on our lives and our culture. We believe that everyone can participate in music, and we honor the value of every music-culture across the world. 

From groups like the Choir Exploratory and the House Band to academic courses like Foundation Arts: Music and Advanced Muscianship, our students can experiment with many differnt modes of musical expression—experienced musicians or novices alike.

Our musicians and vocalists perform in two concerts each year, as well as in theater productions, in regional competitions and festivals, and at our weekly Community Meetings.

Illuminate: The 2019 Winter Concert

by Amanda McFadden, Director of Music

How has music illuminated your life? 

Over the course of this school year, I've been considering the importance of music in all of our lives, but especially in the lives of students at Sonoma Academy. How has music helped to shape them into who they are today? How can I help guide them to think more critically, work more effectively, and position themselves to reap the rich benefits that music has to offer? At all levels, students have been answering these questions for me. From pushing themselves to learn new solos on their instruments with Daniel in Jazz Band to focusing on their technical prowess in Chamber Ensemble, students are developing into more conscientious musicians with a greater appreciation for the craft. 
 
The music department would like to invite you to our concert, titled "Illuminate". We hope to illuminate your hearts and minds through performances, demonstrations, and presentations of the expansive world of music. We hope to leave you feeling connected, impassioned, and held as an important part of the greater Sonoma Academy community. This year, in lieu of a ticket purchase, we ask that you bring a jacket or blanket that will be donated to COTS Petaluma.
