Sacramento Preparatory Music Academy Children’s Choirs
Coming soon: Fall 2018
Choir Director: TBA
Piccolo Singers (Grades 1-3): This choir is comprised of our youngest members. Here children are introduced to concepts like tone and rhythm and begin to sight read notes. Solfege based on movable ‘Do’ will be the standard. Singing is all done in unison to build skills in intonation and group singing.
Mezzo chorus (Grades 4-6): This group will build on the concepts learned in the piccolo singers. More advanced sight reading will be performed to increase musicianship skills. Repertoire will introduce two-part singing aimed at building a more competent musical ear.
Virtuoso Voices (Grades 7-12): This will be the flagship choir focusing more on exposure to different types of repertoire including sacred, secular, traditional, and music from other cultures. Ability to match pitch and some experience with sight reading is a requirement for this group.
Performances will be combined events involving all three groups. The performance will include each group performing individually and at least one combined song to showcase the program. The number of performances will be determined based on group enrollment and season duration.
