Registration is open for September 2021!
No experience is required to sing in Dolce and no audition is required to register. Dolce’s rehearsals are scheduled Tuesdays 5:45 – 7:00 pm and will occur in Knox Presbyterian Church – 3704 37 Street SW.
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.
Currently we have a fully adaptable program which allows for online or in-person learning as needed. 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. Here is more information about our programming plans for the September: Detailed Program Information 2021-22.
