St. Thomas More Collegiate offers a thriving music program, featuring five bands and six choirs. The STMC band and choir have earned national recognition and honours, and are a great point of pride of the school. The band and choir perform regularly at school functions and in the local community. In addition, regular participation in competitions offers important opportunities for the students to receive feedback from experts and recognition among peer schools. Highlights of the annual music program include the Spring Music Concert, Christmas Music Night, and the Chancellor Music Festival, which attracts students from schools across BC’s Lower Mainland for adjudication by experts in choir, piano, guitar, woodwind, and brass instrument ensembles.
The STMC Music Department also offers an Elementary School Band after-school program, in which over 40 children from local elementary schools participate.
