Musical notes in a book

In a “normal” year, the Phoenix Middle School Bands, Choirs and Orchestras present grade-level Winter Concerts in January.  This year, students worked on seasonal music throughout fall and winter and made recordings of their pieces to be shared with families and friends via the internet.  Music teachers Mrs. Bayerl (Orchestra), Mr. Butzow (Band) and Mrs. Ropers-Rosendahl (Choir) hope you enjoy listening to our PXMS students.  The following links are a snapshot of the progress back to in-school learning and having rehearsals together again.  We are so happy to be working with students “live” in 2020-2021!
