Music & Fine Arts
The arts play an important role at Bishop Ludden. Every student receives art and music education so they graduate as more well-rounded individuals.
The Center for Artful Expression
The Center for Artful Expression opened in 2004 and houses the school’s instrumental music, vocal music and visual art programs. Each program has a junior high and senior high component.
The instrumental room is 2,600 square feet, with three practice rooms to accommodate the students of the two concert bands and jazz band. The vocal music room is 2,200 square feet and can accommodate over 200 students.
The art rooms at Bishop Ludden are each 1,100 square feet to meet the demands of art students at four different levels, from introductory courses to advanced placement. Each room boasts excellent storage and clean-up facilities, and one is equipped with a dark room for film development and a special area for digital photography. There is also a kiln room for firing clay, as well as common storage for art supplies and materials.
The Sweet Sounds of Music
Music plays a big part in the daily life of Bishop Ludden students. Along with four choirs and three bands, we offer students the opportunity to take several academic music classes, including General Music, Music in our Lives, Music History, and Perspectives in Music Theory.
The annual spring musical is a much-anticipated event in the community, with attendance typically topping 700 over several performances. The spring musical, under the direction of Mrs. Laura Norris, vocal music instructor, has entertained the local community with renditions of Oklahoma, Babes in Arms, Bye Bye Birdie, Cinderella, Guys and Dolls, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Fiddler on the Roof, Hello Dolly, Music Man, Godspell and The Wizard Of Oz. Also, Fall Drama Productions include Register Here and The Boyfriend Project.
