“Music . . . can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable.”
- Leonard Bernstein-
At Ogden School District, creating music is important to our students’ growth and development. In elementary every student studies music for 1 semester a year. This program is designed to prepare our students for music study in secondary education.
Music choices in secondary include choir, band, orchestra, and guitar. We are very proud of our high school performing groups. Both of our district high schools offer thriving music programs. Ogden High School offers marching band, jazz band, concert band, orchestra and choir programs. While Ben Lomond High School offers a unique pipe and drum corps along with their orchestra, band and choir programs.
