Music & Theater
The NMSHS Music Department has been a Grammy Signature School finalist or semi-finalist 17 times (more than any school in America!) We were honored in 2009 as one of three Grammy Enterprise Award winners receiving $5000 in prize money. We have been honored as a NAMM Foundation Support Music Merit Award winner for the last four years.
The music department offers 6-8th grade choir, Festival choir (9-12th grade), Loquations (small audition-only choir that performs at a variety of events and competitions), ML band, ML orchestra, HS band, and HS orchestra.
NMSHS has an award winning Theater Department. The actors, actresses and technicians perform high quality one-act plays in the Fall and they wow the community with their amazing musical performances in the Spring. Theater students can earn a spot in the International Thespian Society and participate in the Colorado State Thespian Conference each December. Many of our students have earned Excellent and Superior ratings and have participated in the National Conference in Lincoln, Nebraska.
