Mount Olive High School has a tradition of excellence in both choral and instrumental music. Choral students have sung in Carnegie Hall for over 10 years and have recorded for television and film soundtracks.  Band students have worked and shared the stage with world-class musicians and guest clinicians.  Choral and instrumental groups consistently received superior ratings at contests and festivals around the region. MO music students also have a high participation rate in honors ensembles at the region, state, and national levels. Our marching and jazz bands are a source of pride in the Mount Olive community. Mount Olive School District has been recognized for the past four years as a NAMM Foundation Best Communities for Music Education.
