Chorus provides quality group vocal training and performance opportunities to young people ages 7 to 18, with no singing experience necessary. No previous singing experience is necessary to join. During weekly rehearsals, emphasis is placed on vocal training, music theory and the development of musical skills. New members will be asked to do a brief placement audition (no preparation required.) Chorus rehearsals are Mondays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., or Saturdays 10:00 -11:00 a.m.. Chorus tuition is $150 for each 15-week semester; Conservatory students enrolled in a full 18-lesson semester of private music lessons may participate in Chorus as a free student benefit. The Chorus will perform in the Fall and Spring Semesters.
Ensemble-playing opportunities for stringed instrument players and others, from beginners to advanced.
Students explore chamber music repertoire in small groups including duets, trios, quartets, and quintets.
Students of all levels and ages develop performance skills by playing in recitals and attending recitals of other students throughout the semester. The Conservatory recommends (but does not require) that students perform in one recital per semester, subject to approval of the teacher.
