Allegretto Girl Choir (Grades 4-6, auditioned)
The Allegretto (ah-leh-GREH-toe) curriculum strengthens the basics of choral singing. Singers learn basic rhythmic and melodic reading skills, healthy vocal production and breathing skills, and how to sing as a choir in unison and two parts. Allegretto performs in both the fall and spring Girl Choir concerts in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel, plus one community performance.
Students registered for Community Music School ensembles are also expected to participate in a curricular (during the school day, for credit) performing musical ensemble when available; Allegretto should not substitute for curricular music programs.
Due to what we know about the virus and its spread through orally-emitted aerosols, it's clear that we cannot begin the year safely with in-person choral instruction. Girl Choir teacher-conductors have been hard at work creating a plan that will allow us to begin the year with an online experience and easily pivot to in-person rehearsals as soon as it is safe to do so. This year's Allegretto choir will also regularly partner with our Primo Girl Choir to build community and musicianship skills.
Audition requests are closed for the 2020-21 season. Please fill out our interest form to receive audition information in the spring for the upcoming season.
