Visual & Performing Arts
We're making education better for our students with a visual and performing arts program that enhances expression and imagination. Students learn to observe and interpret the world through a unique lens. They find and develop their passions and self-confidence as they produce and perform. We invite you to explore our offerings below.

ChorusDo you like working in groups? If so, chorus is the place for you! You will never have to sing by yourself unless you choose to audition for a solo. In chorus, you will sing to the tunes of all types of music from older Latin pieces to current popular songs you hear in movies and on the radio.
You don’t have to know how to read music or have experience playing bells or chimes to sign up for Handbells at River Bend. Students learn how to read music and all the handbell techniques; all you have to do is sign up! All music materials are provided for students; therefore, no purchases are necessary.
One of River Bend's most unique class offerings is Piano. River Bend has a Piano Lab consisting of 12 electronic pianos with plug-in headphones. Students work at their own pace to learn progressively harder piano pieces in this elective encore selection.
