The staff and pupils work throughout the year and share their expertise and talents through participating in a range of school and parish performances as well as key services.  The Choir is always asked to sing carols at local care homes for the elderely and have taken part in charity fund raising at Luton Airport. Every two years the Senior Choir  participate in the Young Voices Concert at the O2 Arena with about 8,000 other pupils from schools nationally. All pupils in the school Choir give 100% commitment and are a credit to St. Joseph's.

The Vocal Group meet Monday and Thursday lunchtimes and have fun singing a variety of songs and have also performed in school assemblies and concerts. The Vocal Group are auditioned before joining as the repertoire they undertake is more challenging using three or four parts in singing. The group offers pupils an opportunity to explore their musical creativity and develop their individual talents.

Recorder groups meet during lunchtimes and also participate in school concerts and school productions. Years 2, 3 and 4 learn the descant recorder, while Year 5 and 6 pupils are invited to progress onto the treble and tenor recorders. Towards the end of the academic year, committed pupils are asked to play at Recorder Revels run by the Luton Music Service, often hosted by St. Joseph's Primary.

The Year 6 school production takes place in July and involves the vast majority of Year 6 pupils  in a variety of sing and non-singing roles with backing vocals provided by the Senior Choir.  Past productions include Peter Pan, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Noah’s Ark, Around the World in Eighty Days.
