No experience is required to sing in Dolce and no audition is required to register. Dolce’s rehearsals are scheduled Mondays 5:45 – 7:00 pm or Tuesdays 5:45 – 7:00 pm. All rehearsals take place at Knox Presbyterian Church – 3704 37 Street SW.
In our Kodály-based program, Dolce 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.
If you are interested in our program, but your daughter is in Kindergarten or younger, please complete our Intake Form to receive information about program offerings, events and registration for the following season.
