Aural Retention: Singing back (recalling) a succession of pitches played from the piano.
Rhythmic Accuracy: Clapping selected rhythms.
Sight Reading: Reading at sight, selected melodies, as well as reading a vocal part from a Bach Chorale.
Members will also be responsible for a yearly membership fee, music rentals or purchases, as well as performance attire. Members are also required to attend a specific number of rehearsals prior to each performance. This requirement is set yearly by the director.
Prospective members may attend any rehearsal! We would love for you to visit.
