What Happens During a Rehearsal?
PMYC operates with a highly trained and committed music staff that will provide exposure to a variety of increasingly sophisticated repertoire. Depending on your singer's ensemble, during rehearsal they will learn:
Proper vocal and breathing technique
Musical standards and skills
Music sight-reading skills
And so much more
We want our singers to perform at the highest possible musical level appropriate to their physical and personal development. In rehearsals, we teach and reinforce basic skills while exposing singers to a wide variety of choral literature from different musical periods and styles. In concerts, we aim for a high level of musical quality while making the singers aware that a performance goes beyond the music and involves a complete aural, visual, and emotional experience.
Currently, the only ensembles requiring a placement assessment are Harmonia and A Capella. Singers do not need to prepare anything special for the assessment. It’s a simple process that is designed to put singers at ease, and determine which ensemble would best fit their skill level.
Placement assessments are easy-going and stress-free as possible. It’s a chance for your child to meet their conductor (parents are welcome to be present if your child chooses). The assessment is an opportunity for the conductor to listen to your child sing in a one-on-one setting. This will help ensure the best ‘fit’ for your child.
Pro Musica has open enrollment and interested singers are welcome to request an assessment at any time. All placement assessments are held at First United Church of Oak Park, 848 Lake Street, Oak Park.
Please contact us to make an appointment for your singer's placement assessment.
