About the Piccolo Junior Choir

For aspiring young singers, this program provides a fun and energetic introduction to singing techniques, music appreciation, games, rhythm, and movement. Piccolo singers learn percussion techniques and gain an introductory understanding of written music. This group performs twice per year in combined concerts with our other choirs, and in the annual Peace River South Festival of the Arts (usually mid-April). This program is great for early learners hotwired for performance, and a great place to start in developing a lifelong love of music. Rehearsals are an hour long, and facilitate a positive learning experience for the students while stretching their concentration and encouraging strong group dynamics. All instruments and other equipment are provided in the program.

Current singers and their families always have access to online PRACTICE FILES and YouTube playlists to assist with home practice and maintaining connection with the program. As we are an extra-curricular activity which only happens on a weekly basis, this and all our programs depend on students and their families to stay engaged between rehearsals. We do not have access to students on a daily basis as would a school program. For the remainder of our regular season, the month of April through likely to mid-June, we will still be offering weekly video rehearsals through the Zoom platform. Please familiarize yourself with this program, and log-in at your rehearsal time. Please note: rehearsals will not last as long as normal, as it’s more difficult to stay engaged via video than when we can play and sing together within the studio.
