This Adult Education class is for anyone interested in choral singing. It will give you a head start (or refresher) on basic music terminology and symbols. We will also explore our voices and cover the rudiments of sight-singing in a small, supportive group setting. This course is by no means a requirement for joining the Adult Choir; it is merely offered as a stepping stone for those who are interested. Singers high school age and older are welcome! Please contact Director of Music Suzie Cartreine HERE for more information, or to sign up.
