Cantare Singers, the oldest and most select choir of the Worcester Children’s Chorus, is open to high school-aged singers with a good deal of prior musical experience. Throughout the year, singers perform challenging repertoire in a variety of styles under the larger Classical umbrella (Classical pieces, folk songs, spirituals, world music, etc…). Students are continually challenged to improve their music literacy skills and to develop their vocal technique in a healthy way, with the ultimate goal of developing independent, confident musicians.
The group meets from 7:00 to 8:45 p.m. at Assumption College in Worcester every Tuesday of the school year.
Cantare typically has 1 to 2 performances each semester, ideally with at least one large collaboration with orchestra and/or an adult ensemble. The group does tour occasionally and was invited to sing at Carnegie Hall during the 2014-2015 Season.
Stronger reading skills are expected in this ensemble, and ear training and sight-reading techniques are used in increase literacy throughout the year.
$725.00 per year.
