Music
The South High Music program, a recipient of many awards, is dedicated to helping students grow in their musical ability and knowledge. South’s ensembles strive to perform at the highest level possible so they may share their talents and music with others. South music directors believe there is great opportunity to learn skills that will help students become better people and continue performing and enjoying music well beyond high school.
