Choir & Music

Our St. Raphael Parish School choir members are student from grades 2 through 8. They are a source of great joy for all who have the privilege of hearing them. The choir sings regularly at our weekly school mass, monthly for our school family mass every 4th Sunday of the month, and at many of our family gatherings and school functions. They have also been invited to perform at local Long Beach businesses and gatherings.

Extra-curricular Activities and Performing Arts

St. Raphael students have multiple opportunities to express their cultural heritages and represent their individuality through the performing arts. The school offers an inspirational music room equipped with donated keyboards and guitars. Vocal and instrumental music is provided weekly to grades TK – 8th.  Students have the opportunity to participate in an extra-curricular gospel choir. Students in grades TK – 8th practice and perform in the school’s annual Christmas program. Christmas songs and dances from around the world and original class skits are eagerly anticipated pageant highlights.
