NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several changes will be in place for the 2020-2021 season for the safety of our singers and their families. PMYC will NOT be in live performances; we will hold OUTDOOR in-person rehearsals with many precautions in the early fall and early spring, and will hold online rehearsals for the rest of the season. Both in-person and online rehearsals will be shorter in length and include time for social interaction and for music theory. All singers will work on both short-term musical projects and full-ensemble works to be presented online at the end of each semester.
Canterini – 3rd/4th through 7th/8th grade
Canterini 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 and participate in several performances throughout the year. Singers in Canterini develop a strong sense of teamwork, confidence, and poise.
In the 2020-21 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. Canterini will perform through audio recordings and creating a few fun video projects throughout the season.
