Please be aware that due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our April and May events have been postponed. Your tickets will still be valid for the new dates. For current singers, we are offering weekly video meet-ups and rehearsals, as we continue to work toward a year-end show in June. We thank you for your support and understanding at this time.
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.
If you’re interested in enrolling your teen or pre-teen to join our group, we’re working toward a year-end concert in June which will take place outdoors, provided the public health and social distancing recommendations have lifted by then. If you wish to enroll, please complete the registration form below and we will be in touch. The rate to the end of the year would be equivalent to 3 months, with DCCS membership.
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.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR 2019-20
Ages: 12 to 17
Season: September to early May
Classes: Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:00 PM
Instructor: Caitlyn Triebel
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.
