Rio Lindo Adventist Academy has four talented groups of performers who provide music for worship services, concerts, and other events. It is our goal to be used of God as ministers everywhere we go and to bring others closer to Christ through our music.  The study of music not only allows students to excel in other academic disciplines, but it fosters a sense of perseverance, teamwork, and community that is valuable in all aspects of life.  Here in the Rio Lindo Adventist Academy Music Department students have an opportunity to be a part of a fulfilling musical experience, whether as singers or instrumentalists, by participating in either Chorale, Lindaires, Orchestra, and Sonare Bells.
