Arioso

The Arioso curriculum solidifies rhythmic and melodic readying skills and teaches healthy vocal production throughout the female voice change. Singers perform a variety of music in unison and multiple parts. Arioso performs on both the fall and spring Girl Choir concerts in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel, plus one community performance. A one-day performance tour may be offered to interested singers. Fundraising opportunities are available to cover touring costs. Auditions for Arioso are held in April for the following academic year.

Announcements

  • Arioso's first rehearsal will take place on Monday, September 11 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the choir room at First English Lutheran Church. The uniform fitting will take place at that time.
