Primo Girl Choir (Grades 3-5, auditioned)
The Primo (PREE-mo) curriculum introduces large group rehearsal processes. Singers learn choral rehearsal and performance skills, how to read choral music, and how to sing as a choir in unison. Primo performs in both the fall and spring Girl Choir concerts in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel.
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; Primo 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 Primo choir will also regularly partner with our Allegretto Girl Choir to build community and musicianship skills. We are thrilled to welcome Sarah Phelps, Lawrence University graduate, Carnegie Hall Musical Explorers teacher, and elementary music specialist in the Appleton Area School District as our Primo Choir teacher-conductor.
