Band and Orchestra
Studies show that playing a musical instrument helps students perform better academically. Also, it's just plain FUN!!! All 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students (3rd grade may participate in orchestra only) are welcome to join. CCEIM (Cherry Creek Elementary Instrumental Music) has been going strong at Holly Hills since 1995. We have several concerts during the year including 2 district concerts in the spring. These concerts include students from nearly all of the district's 44 elementary schools.

As part of the music curriculum, students in third through fifth grade have the opportunity and choice to participate in choir. In choir, students experience the joys of choral singing with performance preparation being the goal of the club. Choir is organized with an emphasis on developing the correct use of the voice. Students are taught choral techniques and they are expected to apply these skills as they work in a group. During rehearsals, students will learn a variety of choral literature, to follow a conductor, and how to develop performance manners.
Choir meets on Friday mornings from 7:15 am-8:00 am in the Holly Hills music room.
