Amity Children's Chorus:
An introduction to ensemble singing for children who love to sing! Children will learn songs from a variety of musical genres, including pop, folk, multicultural, and classical. Each session will begin with fun and developmentally appropriate vocal warm-ups. Solfege scales will be introduced, as well as the fundamentals of sight-singing and music notation. The course will culminate in a short concert at which the ensemble will showcase all the songs they have learned over the semester.
