The school boasts a range of ensembles including junior and senior orchestras, chamber choir, wind ensemble, flute choir as well as junior and senior stage schools.

The ethos of the school is most evident in our music theatre department which combines music, dance and drama. In addition to the junior and senior stage schools, the multi-award-winning Light Opera Society of Tralee (LOST) and LOST YOUTH have, since 2010, blazed a trail on the music theatre scene in the south-west with acclaimed productions of the Mikado, West Side Story, Jekyll and Hyde, Annie, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables, the Phantom of the Opera and Evita.
