In our Kodály-based program, Dolce choristers (entering Grade 1 to Grade 4) 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.
Registration for our 25th Anniversary Season (2020-2021) is NOW OPEN! We will be working with three scenarios that allow our choral training program to continue while accommodating the ongoing AHS pandemic safety measures: Online Scenario; Combined Scenario or Live Singing Scenario. Contact us for more information about our learning plan for the fall.
Dolce rehearsals take place Tuesdays 5:45 – 7:00 pm (St Matthew’s United Church in the case of a live scenario), but the times may be altered somewhat to accommodate the learning format. No experience is required to sing in Dolce and no audition is required to register.
Our 25th year will be a season of growth, transition and hope as We Sing On!!!
