Throughout the year the StM Performing Arts Department has received numerous accolades. Most recently, music students received praise from LMEA. Earlier this year the choir participated in the large ensemble festival, earning high marks. StM students received superior ratings at the LMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival for choirs. Several students were selected for the Louisiana American Choral Directors Association All State Choir this fall. Additionally, two middle school students were named to the LMEA District VI Honor Bands and two students were selected for the LMEA District VI Honor Choir.
