Canterini – 4th through 8th grade
Canterini is our intermediate ensemble; it continues the development of good singing practices begun in Primo Coro. Students sing music in three parts and learn skills to expand their vocal ranges and musical understanding. They sing music containing complex rhythms and independent vocal lines. Students develop good singing and rehearsal habits through weekly hour-long rehearsals, and participate in several performances throughout the year. Singers in Canterini develop a strong sense of teamwork, confidence, and poise.
In the 2021-22 season, Canterini rehearsals will include music theory and ear training so that everyone can improve their music reading skills. Singers will be exposed to different and new kids of music, but also share the music that they’re listening to, and take time to get to know each other.
