Staccato Show Choir is an energetic advanced musical group intended to combine challenging music repertoire with entertaining choreography. The choir will focus on elevating and applying its formal training into lively, breath taking “show” style performances.
Students will study advanced music theory, vocal warm up, stage:etiquette, presence & showmanship and multi-part choral music. The directoral leadership will be both demanding & rewarding. The time at rehearsal will be run in a serious “conservatory master class” style meaning from the moment the students enter the theater until they leave the theater… training is in process.
The directors will lead incredibly intensive rehearsals that will result in mind-blowing results and outstanding performances. Students chosen to participate in this choir will gain invaluable vocal training, meaningful friendships and treasured memories for a lifetime.
Participation in the choir is at the sole discretion of the directors.
Show Choir Performances typically include: Fall Concert, Winter Showcase & Spring Concert. Additional community performances may be added throughout the year.
Formal coordinated hair/make up styles & attire will be required for performances.
Show Choir members will be invited on an optional year-end performing trip opportunity that will be an additional cost above the annual tuition. Fundraising will be available. More details will be provided in August.
