Preparatory Choir. This non-auditioned choir for children in Senior Kindergarten and up will begin Fall 2016. Through enjoyable singing games, activities and repertoire the children will be introduced to singing in their head tone and will develop ear training skills that will ready them for Choir I.
This non-performance group will meet for an hour each week for two 10-week sessions each season (September to November and January to March). Parents will be invited to a short recital/demonstration in November and March.
Leadership of this group will include two music teachers who have long-standing ties with the Bach Children’s Chorus, Nicole Bower and Meredith Wanstall. Nicole, a former vocal coach and assistant conductor with BCC, has completed her B. Mus. and B. Ed. and continues to teach private voice as well as group music. Meredith, a current member of BCYC and a 2nd-year music student at University of Toronto, has taught private voice, piano, theory and sight-singing for several years. Nicole and Meredith will work alongside Artistic Director, Linda Beaupré, to provide the children with a dynamic, creative team of instructors.
