Our 28th Season
This season, our twenty-eighth, will look different. We’ve had to adjust how we teach, rehearse, and perform. But our mission continues: The Choir School is enriching and strengthening young lives through music education.
When you hear us sing, you’re at the finish line, hearing the culmination of months of determined study by our choristers. Each week, our young singers work to learn the fundamentals of music theory, the building blocks they’ll use as they progress through our program and tackle evermore challenging repertoire. And they’re learning discipline and poise, important skills they’ll take with them long after graduation. That’s what you’ll hear when you join us for an online performance this fall.
Feel the Spirit
Fall Virtual Choir Project Series
Join us on Wednesday evenings in October as we present a series of Virtual Choir Projects featuring The Choir School. These online videos are an innovative way for us to provide performance opportunities to our singers. They also provide a new and unique challenge for singers used to ensemble singing.
“Virtual choirs require a different set of tools for our choristers,” Elizabeth Lenti said. “They’re challenged to sing individually, with the magic of a collective voice only revealed to everyone when the video is complete.”
