Class Description

This advanced class is a wonderful opportunity for the serious vocalist! Students will audition before the Winter Session and those chosen for the class will be asked to commit to the Winter and Spring Sessions. This two session class will further your vocal skills and abilities by being challenged with more difficult sight singing exercises, technique training, and musical comprehension. Students will be expected to be able to hold their own parts and properly blend when singing in duets, trios, and small groups. More challenging pieces will be used and performed in this class.

This is class is audition only. Previous experience is recommended. Auditions will be held at St. Daniel the Prophet Church on Nov. 29th at 4:45pm. Contact your Chapter Coordinator for more info about the audition date and time.
