Choral & Instrumental Music

The Lauralton Hall Music Department offers students the opportunity to develop and enhance their musical, leadership, and collaborative skills through a wide variety of instrumental and choral ensembles:

  • Advanced Vocal Ensemble
  • Concert Choir
  • Freshman Choir
  • Jazz Ensemble
  • Symphonic Orchestra
  • Milford United Percussion (open to students from all Milford high schools)

Music students are engaged and challenged through entertaining orchestral and choral literature from traditional, contemporary, and world music genres. Our ensembles perform at Lauralton's annual Christmas and spring concerts as well during other School events.   

Lauralton musicians and singers also perform locally and have travelled for choral ensemble performances at:

  • Basilica di Sant' Andrea della Valle; Rome, Italy
  • The Vatican for the New Year's Day Papal Mass
  • Disney World's Epcot for the Candlelight Processional
  • Avery Fisher Hall
  • 400th Anniversary of the Founding of Jamestown


Lauralton Hall will be returning to Italy April 6-14, 2023, making stops in Venice, Florence, and Rome. Led by Fine Arts Department Chair Margy Sargent, Advanced Vocal Ensemble, and Concert Choir students will have the opportunity to perform for Italian audiences in various churches, piazzas, theaters, concert halls, and archaeological ruins.


Milford United Percussion

Additionally, our instrumental musicians perform with Milford United Percussion, a competitive percussion ensemble that is not only open to students from Lauralton Hall, but to students from all high schools in Milford. They perform thematic shows every year from an array of musical styles. The group is highly decorated - being named MAC Festival Class A Champions in 2017, 2018, and 2019 and consistently receiving Platinum ratings at the annual Great East Music Festival.
