BoyChoir Project - Friday, October 5, 2012
The Boychoir Project helps elementary vocal music teachers recruit and encourage boys to sing at school by giving 4th-5th-6th grade boys a chance to be in a BoyChoir for a day. With their elementary music teachers, who recommend them for our program, as many as 75 boys will come together for a 7-hour workshop with our expert teachers and other boys who may be "surrounded by girls" in their school choirs. This one-day emersion into the BoyChoir world gives them the chance to work on their beautiful treble voices while in the presence of "boys only--no girls allowed!" At the end of the day, they perform a concert for their parents and friends.
If you are an elementary teacher, please call our office for more information.
Music Teacher Workshops
- Young Voices regularly hosts at least one meeting per year for our local Kodály teachers group, the
Regional Organization of Colorado Kodály Educators (ROCKE). Non-members are invited to attend. For more information, please see www.rockeonline.weebly.com.
School Tours - April
On several days in April, our Young Voices choirs travel to area schools in Arapahoe and Douglas Counties to demonstrate the opportunities available in choral singing. In 25-minute school assemblies, our choirs entertain and inspire their audiences, while our teacher/conductors engage the school populations in singing rounds with the choir. We end each concert by congratulating the school's choir members and encouraging other students to participate in their school music programs. To invite us to your school, please call us at 303-797-SING (-7464).
SpringSing - April 19-20, 2013
This popular, intensive weekend honor choir project serves 4th – 6th graders who love singing and who are recommended by their school music teachers. Approximately 150 elementary school singers come together at a local high school on a Friday evening and all-day Saturday to learn and rehearse together in preparation for an evening performance. The honor choir involves children who have developed a passion for singing in their school music programs and honors those who have become leaders in their school choirs. The extra challenge they experience in two days often inspires them to return to their home schools and encourage their peers toward choral singing excellence.
