Upper School student playing the violin in the orchestra

Delphian's music department offers instruction in a range of instruments from woodwinds and brass, to strings, piano and percussion. Separate guitar classes play host to an ever-growing field of up-and-coming musicians.

Friday Night Performance (FNP) provides a unique venue for students to showcase their varied talents. Aspiring comics, actors, singers/songwriters, dancers and musicians routinely grace the FNP stage. Everyone is welcome to audition, and performers can always expect an enthusiastic and supportive audience.

Each FNP show is planned, organized and produced by Delphian students, giving them the opportunity to work with performers and learn how to produce a talent show that parents, students and staff can enjoy.

Upper School choir performing


Delphian has a thriving choral program which regularly involves 60-90 students in the Upper School alone. Lower, Elementary and Middle School students also participate in choirs, all of which perform regularly for students, parents and guests throughout the year.  

Upper School varsity choir members are selected by audition. They perform the best of high school choral literature and have developed a tradition of excellence, having qualified for the Oregon State Choir Championships for over twenty consecutive years. Students in the varsity choir frequently participate in the District and All-State Honor Choirs as well.
