Singers in grades 4-6 are invited to attend an open rehearsal of the Oxford Children’s Chorus at 4 p.m. Monday (Aug. 22) in the choir room of the University of Mississippi Music Building. Singers who wish to join are welcome to audition immediately after rehearsal.
The Oxford Children’s Chorus builds musicians through collaborative music-making. Singers build music literacy skills that will last throughout their lifetimes.
Each rehearsal includes time developing music reading and writing skills. Concerts highlight singers’ musical development and their production of beautiful, expressive singing.
Each rehearsal is planned to foster growth through fun, lively and challenging musical activities. Professionally trained musicians help young singers develop basic musicianship skills, including reading, writing, singing and harmony, under the leadership of Andy Paney, UM associate professor of music education.
The chorus rehearses 4-5:15 p.m. Mondays. Tuition for the semester is $35. There is no commitment and no cost to come to the open rehearsal Monday.
