No experience is required to sing in Bella and no audition is required to register. Bella’s rehearsals are scheduled Tuesdays 4:30 – 5:30 pm.  All rehearsals take place at Knox Presbyterian Church – 3704 37 Street SW.

In our Kodály-based program, Bella singers develop musicianship through traditional children’s folk songs, art songs, nursery rhymes, and movement games. Choral training is developed with an emphasis on the artistic refinement of performance, vocal technique, inner hearing, rhythm, and learning Solfège – a relative pitch system which uses pitch syllables (do, re, mi, etc.) to develop a keen musical ear.

Choristers will participate in vocal coaching, diction, language & theory learning during rehearsals and will be provided with supplementary aural, written and video materials.  Additional learning opportunities with guest conductors, clinicians and other specialists will be offered. 

Come and Experience our Bella program!

Our season runs from September to May.
