At Christian Brothers Academy, we are proud to offer a wide variety of vocal and instrumental music options, for beginners and experienced musicians alike.
The vocal and instrumental areas have consistently delivered strong public performances, many of which receive national recognition and exposure. In recent years, students have had the chance to play to sold-out crowds alongside major names like Max Weinberg, drummer of Bruce Springsteen's famous E Street Band. Notable achievements include the Jazz Ensemble earning a Gold Rating and the Men's Choir earning Silver at the 2015 Heritage Music Festival in Annapolis, MD.
Likewise, the CBA Pipes and Drums band is an annual award-winner, comprised exclusively of students who have never played bagpipes before entering high school.
Since opening in 1985, the Shaheen Music Wing for Performing Arts has served as the hub for our performing arts groups. Facilities include a practice room equipped with pianos, amplifiers, and drums, as well as several larger rooms for ensemble rehearsals.
