Three casts featuring more than 80 students from the Tampa Bay area are appearing in the Broadway classic Cats. The students are enrolled in Corbett Prep's Community School of the Arts, which offers performing arts opportunities as well as music, drama and dance lessons to students at Corbett Prep and the greater community.
To foster a love of music, our program gives all students the chance to explore making music in a variety of ways.
All students have the opportunity to participate in musical activities twice a week, learning music fundamentals and exploring music of many cultures and historical periods. Students sing and learn drums, recorders, band instruments, Orff instruments, electronic keyboards, and computer programs.
Students who choose to take their musical experience to a more advanced level may join the Spirit of IDS Chorus (3rd grade), Warriors’ Pride Chorus (4th -5th grades), Middle School Musical Theatre (6th- 8th grades), and Beginning and Advanced Bands (5th-8th grades). Middle School students may also participate in the All-State Chorus Prep club, where they prepare for auditions for the highly competitive choral group that performs at the Florida Music Education Association conference. These enrichment opportunities give students even more experiences to embrace and develop their musical talents.
Many students also choose to further their students with private or group lessons in voice or instruments after school in Corbett Prep's Community School of the Arts.
The Warriors' Pride Chorus provides opportunities for fourth and fifth graders who would like to pursue music at a more advanced level. The chorus produces a musical each year, allowing students to gain experience on the stage, singing, dancing and acting. Students can also take on leadership roles in stage management and technical theatre.
Middle School Musical Theatre invites you to explore the galaxy in six performances of Starmites March 28-31. Starmites is a charming story about a shy teenager who avoids the pressures of growing up by escaping into the fantasy world of her favorite comic books. When she mysteriously travels through a magic portal to Intergalactic Space, she finds herself in the middle of a conflict where she must fight an evil villain and save the universe!
