Talk to Mr. Beise or Mr. Peterson about being part of the Eagles Music Department! 

Evergreen's Music Department grows each year in participation and achievement.

  • In 2019-20, 35% of the student body participates in one or more Music Ensembles. COVID hit our programs just like everywhere else, but we see a growth  in 2022-23 back to previous numbers.
  • Each group has achieved high standards in Learning and Performance; Many of Mr. Beise's and Mr. Peterson's groups have received Superior Ratings (highest possible) at Festivals.
  • Each year there are many opportunities for each student to learn and perform: Solo and Ensemble Festival; Marching Band (at Salmon Days Parade or Daffodil Festival); Assembly performances; and Many outside of school "gigs".

Many opportunities for Advanced students to go beyond the school programs: All-District Honor Band, Choir, and Orchestra; Junior-All State Band, Choir, and Orchestra; Eastside Youth Concert Band; Bellevue Youth Symphony, Seattle Youth Symphony; Columbia Boys and Girls Choirs.
