It is a goal of the Music Department to reach as many students as possible and to create an appreciation for the arts in a well-rounded student. Through new experiences, and exciting performances, we continue a tradition and growth of talent.
Concert Band meets every day during school. The concert band runs like a standard wind ensemble, and
includes all grade levels and all playing abilities. We perform several concerts throughout the school year at RB, community events, and other local schools. Anyone interested, advanced or beginner, is encouraged to sign up for Concert Band.
Chorale and Chamber Choir meet every day during school. Students work on personal vocal technique as well as working in an ensemble. Several performances take place during the year at RB, community events, and local schools. Chamber Choir is for anyone interested. Chorale is an auditioned group for more developed singers.
RB3 is an after-school ensemble. This collection of our best players includes all the different types of performers we have. RB3 plays the widest variety of “pop” music; from 70’s classic rock to modern Top 40 pop. RB3 performs at each home football game with an exciting new show every Halftime, as well as other athletic events, concerts at RB, and local community events. In our age of digital pop music, RB3 is our cutting edge, modern rock ensemble.
The Drama Guild is a long-standing tradition here at Roger Bacon and is comprised of students who have a passion for theater, whether on the stage or behind the scenes. Students in any grade may join at any time, no experience required! Each school year will be comprised of one fall play, one spring musical and monthly Guild meetings. Other opportunities may include volunteering, fundraisers and extra performances! All performances are held in the Carole Dauwe Fine Arts Center.

“The Fine Arts are an integral part of Roger Bacon. Not only is the Fine Arts Center literally at the center of the school, but we strive to offer different electives to reach every individual student of RB. Through performance opportunities in and out of school, a full year of concert events, gallery and competition opportunities, and real-world experiences out in our community we are constantly providing experiences as diverse as the multitude of emotions that art can convey – proving that “Art” is at the center of every SpARTan.”
