Boulder Valley Women's Chamber Choir

Boulder Valley Women's Chamber Choir is a fun and unique opportunity for women ages 18 and up to improve their musical abilities in a small choral setting combined with private voice lessons. Each woman will have the opportunity to gain confidence in their ability to sing and will experience the thrill of performing both as a member of the choir and as a soloist. The choir will be limited to 15 women. Choir will meet on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:15 pm throughout the school year, with private voice lessons scheduled Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons.   

 

In choir we will focus on hearing and singing harmonies, musical expression, performance, and music literacy. Each choir member will improve their skills in note reading, rhythm reading, and understanding and interpreting musical markings. We will also explore different genres of music throughout the year.

 

In private voice lessons we will focus on principles of healthy vocal technique tailored to each student’s individual needs. Lessons will help each choir member develop her vocal abilities, improve her musicality, and become an expressive performer.

 

Why require each choir member to take private voice lessons?  Individual instruction, combined with real life application in a choral setting makes for a unified and beautiful sound. As singers use their common vocal technique and work together to create the sound of the choir, a sense of community and mutual accomplishment will grow, resulting in a heightened choral experience. 

 

We will have 3 performances over the course of the school year, each with a specific theme. Boulder Valley Youth Chamber Choir will sing 5 memorized pieces, and each girl will also sing one song as a solo performance. Concerts will last about 1 hour 15 minutes. Participation in each concert is mandatory. The concerts will be held on the following dates:

 

Term 1 Concert: Saturday November 4th: Broadway Melodies – a night of music from the theater.

Term 2 Concert: Saturday, February 10th: Songs from the 40’s – a night of ballads and standards 

Term 3 Concert: Saturday, May 5th: Pops Concert – a night of contemporary music

 

Times and Locations or concerts are to be determined and will be announced as soon as possible.
