Preparatory Chorus

Open to singers, ages 6-9, with little or no former experience, by placement audition. Students build a foundation of healthy vocal production and aural skills, through developmentally-appropriate vocal activities and repertoire. Students perform in two concerts per year. Students must have text-reading ability.
