At Salk Middle School we offer engaging musical opportunities in Choir, Band, Orchestra, and African Drums. Follow the linked pages in the side bar to the ensemble you wish to explore.

The calendar tab provides information for all known performances and will be updated as often as new information is available!
March was a successful month in the music department. All of our performing ensembles shared their hard work at our evening concerts. The pop strings and jazz bands had a phenomenal performance at River Park Square with the Shadle Park Jazz Combo to celebrate First Friday.
We are exceptionally proud of our student musicians for their regional festival appearances. The Advanced Choir brought home a Superior rating from their festival at Deer Park HS. The Intermediate and Advanced Orchestra both received Excellent ratings for their festival performances. The Intermediate and Advanced Bands both received Superior ratings for their festival appearance at Whitworth University. Our Salk musicians work hard and it shows. Congratulations to all of you for a job well done!
Parade season is up next. Please watch the band page, your Remind messages, and your student's folder for information regarding marching practices, cadence practices, and the Jr. Lilac Parade on Saturday, May 13th.
