Each year, the season begins with the required Season Orientation. The Treble Chorus of New England, creates an exciting and fun starting program for our children who love to sing and perform. There are two different workshops:
Season Orientation is a week of singing, learning and making great friends. Each day, students enjoy getting to know their fellow singers during break (snack provided) and lunch, and also while they participate in various classes.
Sight singing and ear training
Diction in English & foreign language
Small and large ensemble
Group vocal technique training
This summer's orientation will be held the following days:
Monday-Thursday (Aug.15-19) 8:45am-2:15pm (My Own Voice from 12:35-2:15 pm) at West Parish Church in Andover
Friday (Aug.19) 8:45-noon
Performance: Friday (Aug.19) 5:30 call time for all Choirs for 6:30pm performance venue TBA
HANDS ON OPERA! WORKSHOP*:
Hands On Opera! Summer Workshop is an additional commitment for choristers. Working on opera scenes for ten days, the singers develop their musical capabilities along with their relationships with one another and the opera staff. The opera will be performed during the concert season, and is the basis of our annual outreach Education Concert, performed each fall for schoolchildren in the greater Merrimack Valley.
This summer's Opera Workshop will be held the following days: OPERA CAST ONLY
Monday-Friday (Aug.8-12) 9:00-3:30pm at the West Parish Church in Andover
Monday-Thursday (Aug.15-19) 2:30-4:30pm
Friday (Aug.19) 12:00-2:30pm
Performance: Friday (Aug.19) 5:00 call time for 6:30pm Performance atTBA
The cast will learn music/lyrics for our 2016 opera. Stay tuned!
Both workshops end in a Showcase free of charge/free will donation. Family and friends are invited to see the fine deportment of the choristers, and an impressive memorized repertoire they have mastered in just one week.
