La Salle offers opportunities for musicians in the following bands:
The La Salle choral program, under the direction of Mr. mark Norman, is designed to provide all students an opportunity to explore the art of vocal performance with varying degrees of difficulty. If a student does not have room in his schedule, he can choose to meet with Mr. Norman independently to learn the music. In addition to the full chorus, freshman members have their own choral class where they learn the large ensemble music and a few extra songs that they perform independently.
