School students gain confidence performing on stage and in concerts
from an early age, whether in the classroom, or as part of a larger
performance group. Performing arts, music and drama are required
courses in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools. Additionally, each division offers students several opportunities during the school year to
create serious, fun, or whacky dramas; students are involved in acting,
writing, casting, costumes, choreography and staging shows like Alice
Through the Looking Glass, Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, and
Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and Taming of the Shrew.
Musicals are also produced annually in Upper School, with the most
recent ones being Once Upon A Mattress, The Fantasticks, Oliver and an
original 1940's musical radio play, A Wing And a Prayer.
has many opportunities for students to perform musically. The Lower
school chorus is made up of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders, in Middle School
there is a 6th grade chorus and a 7th and 8th grade ensemble, and
many Upper School students sing in a Vocal Ensemble which performs a
wide variety of contemporary and classical music throughout the year on
campus and in the community. Lincoln's music history includes the
traditional "Lambrequins," a distinguished vocal group drawn by audition from the
Ensemble. Lambrequins perform a challenging repertoire of
music from all periods in music history. Our instrumentalists have the
opportunity to take Chamber Ensemble, where they are challenged to
perform a variety of music with each other as well as performing with
our vocal ensembles. Lincoln's performing arts offerings also include
two theatre classes, and our much loved Whitechapel English Handbells.
