Marian Fine Arts
Marian’s Fine Arts Program encourages its students to express themselves openly on stage, on canvas or through music. This department discovers each student's voice, and offers the freedom to express herself and develop her full potential. Marian High School provides instruction in music (instrumental and vocal), art, dance and drama. Several of these areas offer a four-year academic program of study.
Students perform solos and/or ensemble work locally, statewide and nationally.

During the year instrumentalists perform as soloists, small ensembles, and large ensembles for concerts as well as liturgies and other special events. Class instruction is available for both the beginner and the advanced musician. In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in the Handbell Ensemble and learn basics on piano, guitar, and percussion in the Music Kaleidoscope Class.There are ten semesters of instruction available. Advanced classes are offered for honors credit. Each year Marian students are recognized for their artistic talents in local and national competitions and their work has been displayed in New York, Washington, D.C. & Nebraska.
