Prince of Peace offers a wide range of opportunities for students to be involved in the performing arts. Handbell Choir has been part of our history for many years. We also offer three levels of band as well as a variety of instruments from horns, strings, guitar to percussion. In 2015 we added choir to our performing arts selection and in 2016 we added drama. We also have a student Praise Band that performs during chapel and other worship events.
Students are introduced to music in the class starting in Kindergarten, and goes through third grade. In fourth grade they are introduced to playing an instrument with a recorder, and can join beginning band in fifth grade.
Twice a year the students get to show what they've learned during a Christmas and Spring Concert. Many of the students that choose to travel to Portland to L.E.S.T (Lutheran Elementary Schools Tournament) get to compete with other schools from across the nation in their performing arts selection. The Handbell Choir also attends various competitions and festivals through out the school year.
