Music

St. Hubert's Music Program includes one of the few remaining symphonic orchestra's in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and both an active and performing chorus and handbell choir.

Music courses are offered to provide the study of music to a variety of students, viz., those who are committed to the serious study of music, those who wish to pursue music as a subject of secondary interest, and those who through a greater knowledge would develop their aesthetic sensitivity and thus enjoy music more fully. A music fee is charged for each instrumental course to cover supplies and lessons.
