Our mission is to educate children, ages 5-16, to develop an understanding for and a love of classical music, provide exceptional choral training, and offer choral concerts that benefit diverse audiences.
There are three choirs:
- Training Choir is for the younger, less experienced singer (most singers are ages 6-9). The choristers begin to learn proper vocal techniques including breath control, tone production, diction, and posture. They also develop an understanding of the stage, fundamental music skills and concepts, languages, and they develop a solid foundation of music literacy. Training Choir rehearses weekly, virtually, for 30 minutes from 5 – 6pm.
- Concert Choir is the larger, intermediate ensemble (most singers are ages 10-16). The choristers continue to advance their work in vocal techniques, musical skills, and languages. They build focus and musical responsibility and are encouraged to work independently when learning more advanced repertoire. The choristers perform a wide variety of music in many languages. Concert Choir rehearses weekly, virtually, for one hour from 6 – 7:00pm.
- My Own Voice is our newest choir. Started as a pilot program in 2012 to make choral music accessible to all, My Own Voice is a program for children and young adults with needs. The successful pilot resulted in a full-season program available to all. We are hoping to start our virtual rehearsals with My Own Voice in October, virtually, on Tuesdays 6-7:30pm.
Children will be placed in the appropriate program based on their skills, maturity, and readiness. To schedule an audition, please email Melanie Muggia.
