Get Involved

Elementary, middle, and high school students working at their group levels in a club
  • Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

  • Band

    We are proud to have an award-winning band with students at all levels of learning.

    TBA: combined performance with Ft. Lauderdale H.S. Band

    There are still a few school instruments available for student rental. The fee is $20.00 to rent an instrument for the entire year. The fee also includes a method book, music folder, and the use of a locker for the instrument. Otherwise, students will need to rent or buy a musical instrument from a music store (avoid the internet because most of those instruments are of poor quality and cannot be repaired unless they are a name brand like Conn, Selmer, King, Schroetter, etc.)

    Thank you, and looking forward to another musical year at Sunrise Symphony.
