Music

We have a place for you!

Whether you want to play jazz, rock or classical chamber music, or if you’re a singer who likes pop, a cappella, musicals, or madrigals, Branson has a place for you! We challenge our students to become confident performers, strong collaborators, and to learn the language and cultural importance of music. You’ll be able to showcase your talent at our Winter Arts Festival & Concert, the annual rock show and jazz concert, and in our musical pit orchestra. We inspire in our students a rich, lifelong appreciation for music as well as the necessary training and experience for those who will go on to conservatories and music schools.

Performance Opportunities

Our musicians are featured performers at the annual Winter Concert, Jazz Show, Rock Show, and Festival of the Arts (FAB). They also may perform for the school's annual musical.

Our ensembles have performed at The White House, Disneyland, Union Square San Francisco, Tiny Telephone Recording, and many other places around the Bay Area.
