The Vivace Youth Choir is an intermediate level program that encourages musical independence and strong vocal skills. One and a half hours per week includes instruction on solo and group vocal techniques, vocal health, sight-singing and aural development for matching tones and tuning up to  4-part harmony. Classes also include elements of music literacy, positive group dynamics, and performance energy. Music is chosen with the students’ interests in mind, and students will have input on arrangements and style, including choreography and costumes. Opportunities for solos and duets as well as additional sectional rehearsals. The music we learn varies in style, genre, and degree of difficulty, from popular music and jazz to classical, from Broadway hits to traditional tunes. This choir performs in at least three concerts per year, and potentially other one-off events. Students will also have the chance to compete in local and regional Arts Festivals.

One Night Only Concert: Starting in September, students will begin to program and rehearse for their own show choir production, and are involved in every stage of the concert production experience. This include choosing music and arrangements, rehearsing, promotions, staging, props, costumes, choreography, and more. The 2020 ONO Concert will be on Friday, March 6th.

Prince George & District Music Festival: This year, we will plan to enter the provincial-qualifying music festival in Prince George. This festival happens every year in mid-February, and choirs can be moved on to provincial and then national levels of competition. There will be extra fundraising involved for students to travel for this competition, and we will also be looking to have some adults as chaperones for the trip.
