New singers are required to attend a placement meeting with our Artistic Director prior to registration: BOOK HERE. This friendly meeting will ensure that we find the best fit for your daughter’s voice in the choir.
Viva’s rehearsals are scheduled on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30 pm and will occur in Knox Presbyterian Church – 3904 37 Street SW.
Viva (lively) choristers, Grades 4-7, enjoy a program designed to advance their musical skills and build a wide and varied range of repertoire. They rehearse once a week to focus on the development of vocal technique and musicianship through artistic interpretation and performance. As choristers learn Solfège – a relative pitch system which uses pitch syllables (do, re, mi, etc.) they develop a keen musical ear and further improve their ability to read music. Their beautiful singing is a model for all, and evidence of the high standard that can be achieved by young singers.
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.
