St. James students in grades 5 - 8 can participate in the Parochial Music Organization (PMO). Students learn to play a band instrument and/or sing in a choir. Band lessons are taught weekly at St. James. The band also meets one night during the week. Choir meets in the evening. In addition to the obvious musical education PMO band provides, it also gives St. James' students the opportunity to meet students from other Quincy parochial schools!
