Alverno Singers is a year-long course offered to current and aspiring singers in grades 9 – 12, regardless of their previous choral experience. The core curriculum explores basic vocal technique, music theory, and history as it relates to Blues, Jazz, Broadway Musical Theater, Gospel, Folk, Classical, Sacred and other genres. This exploration takes place on a solo, small group, and large group performance level, as well as lecture and extensive listening. In addition, students are expected to work individually and in small groups on a self-guided curriculum to explore areas of particular interest in further detail. This class meets 3 mornings at zero period: Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 7:00 – 7:45 am in the Villa Music Room. Student instrumentalists are encouraged to join and play on selected repertoire.
Do you play an instrument? Well, choir would love to have you join! In recent years, some very talented Alverno students have accompanied the choir on the piano, guitar, violin, flute, and even a dulcimer.
