Musical self-confidence and basic vocal technique are taught using the kind of excellent repertoire kids deserve but rarely experience, including classical and folk music from all parts of the world. Each child discovers that his or her voice is an essential part of something bigger and more wonderful than they might have imagined. Choristers will be singing all the way home! Class culminates in a casual recital at the end of the semester.

For those singers who have acquired vocal independence (can hold their solo part against other moving parts), this a capella group explores music from the Renaissance through modern day arrangements. Young musicians with instrumental and/or singing experience and a well-developed ear learn challenging music in a fun atmosphere. Part-emphasized recordings are provided to facilitate each student's requisite mastery. The class culminates in a casual recital at the end of the semester. The group is occasionally invited to perform in off-campus events.
