• Helena Youth Orchestra

If you are looking for information on the Helena Youth Orchestra, their website and Facebook feed are both excellent resources. Contact Mr. Cleary if you have any questions!

• Last Chance Music Camp

Although it is under construction, the new Last Chance Music Camp webpage (linked below) is where you can find information about this unique and exceptional summer music opportunity right here in Helena. We hope to see you in 2018!

Music and Technology

Welcome to C.R. Anderson Middle School’s Music and Technology Class. This unique eighth grade program has undergone many changes since it was created in 2006, and it has become a place for serious musicians to explore a side of music different from that offered in traditional performing ensembles.

Unfortunately, scheduling limitations in 2017-2018 have made it impossible to offer the class. Last year’s information will stay posted in the hopes that it will prove beneficial if you are getting to know what this class has to offer.

MET Live in Schools
