The Children’s Choir is divided into two performing groups. The Carillon Singers are pictured below:
The Carillon Singers are young and/or beginning singers (ages 5-10) focusing on the basics of body alignment, low breathing, expanding range, releasing the jaw, and adjusting the “weight” in the voice, as well as learning to “read” beginning rhythms and sight-singing simple melodies.
The Classical Singers are ages 11 and older who exhibit basic singing skills and are ready to exceed those skills with new challenges: wider tessitura, rapid articulation, and extended breath management. These singers will learn basic music reading skills and as a result will be capable of singing more difficult song literature.
These singers perform together at most concerts.
