The Concord Community Schools Performing Arts Department prides itself on a national reputation for musical excellence.

The band department includes the nationally-known Minuteman Marching Band, two jazz bands, a pep band, concert band, symphonic band, and the fourth-hour philharmonic. The choral department includes seven groups: Beginning Women’s Chorus, Intermediate Men’s Chorus, Intermediate Women’s Chorus, Advanced Women’s Chorus, Concert Choir, Symphonic Choir, and the Concord Singers. The orchestra department includes the string and symphony orchestras. The color guard combines the arts of marching, dancing, and flag choreography to embody the music of the band and to offer the audience a visually captivating experience. The theater department thrills audiences each year with a fall play and spring musical.
