Shiloh encourages its students to explore and cultivate all of their God-given gifts and talents related to the arts. Students learn about the arts in the classroom, experience the arts through field trips, and compete in the arts through band, choir, drama, and many special presentations throughout the year. Starting in PreK4, students begin to take classes in art and music, and these classes continue throughout a student's education experience at Shiloh.
Shiloh offers instruction in band during regular school hours for grades 6th - 12th. The band program consists of a 6th grade Beginner Band, a 7th grade Junior High Band and an 8th-12th grade High School Marching and Concert Band.
Shiloh?s band program teaches the fundamentals of music while developing and honing a student?s performance skills. Students involved in band compete year-round in various individual opportunities, ensembles, concerts, and marching competitions, and are continually recognized for their achievements. Upon graduation, students who wish to pursue their musical options further find themselves well-prepared for a bright future.
Theater & Drama
Here at Shiloh we nurture the gifts God has given us, offering drama classes and a full production musical or play each spring. Our classes include studies in pantomime, storytelling, character development, skits for chapel, improvisation, and the study of several classic plays from Tartuffe to Antigone. We work on monologues and duets, as well as ensemble skits. We also feature the development and presentation of a lip sync performance each semester which includes costumes and choreography.
The all-school play is presented in the spring, and any secondary student is eligible to try out. We have performed Bye, Bye Birdie, My Fair Lady, High School Musical, and Hello Dolly to rave reviews and enthusiastic audiences. Our play productions have included Happy Daze, Ask Any Girl, and Girl Crazy.
