Bellflower Elementary Music Programs
We are very fortunate at Bellflower Unified School District to have amazing elementary music programs. Our 5th and 6th grade students have the option to choose between participating in band or chorus. We have approximately 500 students participating in band or GATE band and over 1,750 students participating in elementary, honors, advanced chorus, ensemble, or dance programs.
District wide, over 1,650 chorus students participate in two performances each year in the fall and then again in the spring and about 130-150 students are selected for speaking parts.
The Ensemble and Elementary singers are comprised of 68 of the most talented students throughout the district. These performing groups tour various schools in our district, but also perform at large venues like Disneyland, California Adventure, and Knott’s Berry Farm.
The Elementary Dance Program consists of 12 GATE identified students that bring an exciting element to many performances each season. They represent our district showcasing their talents as they perform with the Ensemble each year.
The Advanced Chorus is a GATE group of 35 students who focus primarily on music production, while fostering choral and vocal singing skills in hopes that they would eventually move into Ensemble or continue in the arts in 7th grade.
The Elementary Honor Chorus includes between 50-70 students who are selected each year to sing at the District Choral Music Festival, held at either BHS or MHS.
Our wonderful elementary music programs provide students with multiple options and opportunities to participate in any of the above mentioned programs. We invite you to come see one of our performances. For further information you may contact the Office of Curriculum and Instruction.
