From Pep Band to Handbells: The Many Parts of McCallie’s Music Program

  • Arts + Music
  • Podcast

The many and varied music offerings, from the pep band to private vocal lessons, is the topic of the latest in a series of podcasts examining McCallie’s academic departments. Michael Ake, Chair of the Music Department (also referred to as the Performing Arts Department) sits down with Sumner McCallie, Dean of Faculty and Curriculum, to discuss the various offerings and objectives of the department. Mr. Ake uses the annual Christmas performance known as Candlelight to highlight the many aspects of the Music Department, and how practice, practice, practice, results in outstanding performances by groups as varied as handbells, the McCallie/GPS Chorus, and classical guitars.

The podcast, which can be found below, is the eighth and final podcast that features McCallie faculty members discussing their academic disciplines. Other podcasts feature History, Fine Arts, Math, Bible, Languages, English, and Science.
