Our Treble choir is for singers in 2nd-8th grades. In Treble, we learn all the fundamentals for correct vocal production. We focus on breathing, vowel formation, intonation, articulation, and more -- as we rehearse a wide variety of songs. We sing in unison and harmony, which strengthens our ability to hear and hold vocal part. Treble performs all over the RVA area throughout the year, as well as three performances for Friends & Family. No audition is necessary for Treble, just a desire to sing, learn and have fun along the way!
Encore is an audition choir for girls in grade 6-12. Auditions are held each May for the following season (September - June). Encore sings a wide variety of vocal styles (classic choral, musical theater, pop, jazz, acapella) in two to five-part harmony. Extensive focus is given to vocal production and performance. Girls are encouraged to sing with Treble for at least one year before auditioning for Encore. However, exceptions can be made for singers with sufficient experience.
