Sorella: Intermediate Singers ages 8-13 years, grade 3-9

Tuesdays 4:00-6:00pm
Tuition: $2,225 per year
Directed by: Rita Lilly

Sorella girls learn about ease of healthy vocal production, breath, space, and beauty in tone. They sing in unison and up to three voice parts in a variety of styles. They are immersed in music theory and ear training, both in full rehearsals and in small-group work before and after rehearsals, to improve their musicianship and score-reading skills. They develop self-discipline, poise, and teamwork through a traditional choral rehearsal experience leading to proper performance etiquette through performances during the season. Sorella choristers have a lot of fun and achieve a high level of confidence, self-discipline and artistry.


In addition to regular rehearsals, Sorella girls are invited to attend a highly anticipated, intensive overnight retreat in February, and a week-long summer day camp in late July/early August, both held at Pacific Boychoir Academy. These activities help them get to know each other better, and dive deeper into theory and other musical concepts.
