Apprentice Chorus (AC)
Grades 2 - 4

Conductor: Adine Mintz

The Apprentice Chorus rehearses once a week on Tuesdays from 5:00 – 6:10 pm.  This Chorus provides the children with vocal, drama, solfege, and theory training in preparation for advancement to Intermediate Chorus.  Dramatic training is also provided with a drama coach. 

Curriculum at the Apprentice Chorus level:

  • Teach rudiments of music notation through class instruction and occasional homework exercises
  • Develop the ability to follow and learn from notated music
  • Develop ringing tone and good basic vocal technique
  • Continue work on responding to pitch and rhythm through response exercises
  • Discover part singing through use of simple canons, rounds and through singing with older divisions of the CCOC
  • Provide knowledge of basic drama techniques
  • Develop good singing posture
  • Provide the opportunity to develop and perform a short staged production with choral singing and dialogue
  • Provide positive performance experiences both as an autonomous group and alongside other divisions of the CCOC

Every two weeks students receive 140 minutes of instruction, generally comprised of:

  • a 60 minute large group instruction (full chorus)
  • a 35 minute smaller group work (half chorus)
  • a 35 minute drama instruction (half chorus)
  • a 10 minute class music theory instruction

Rehearsal time: 70 minutes weekly

The Apprentice Chorus participates each season in a winter and spring concert, and in the junior division staged opera. They also appear in the fully staged annual opera production.   During the season they will have other performance opportunities. 

A one-day team-building music and drama camp is held in September, and is mandatory for all members.
