The Capriccio curriculum strengthens rhythmic and melodic reading skills and teaches healthy vocal production through the beginning stages of the female voice change. Singers perform repertoire in unison, two and three parts. Capriccio performs on both the fall and spring Girl Choir concerts in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel, plus one community performance. Auditions for Capriccio are held in April for the following academic year.
Assignments from January 15th rehearsal:
--Write out the 3 minor scales as a solfege ladder. Remember, they are natural, harmonic and melodic minor. Write the 3 scales side by side and use that to practice singing each on individually, both up and down.
--Finale: Practice part 1, using solfege. Use a light, gentle singing voice for the higher pitches.
--Bonus: Identify the tune of the finale.
Assignments from January 8th rehearsal:
--Practice Jubilate Deo for voicing next week.
--Complete the Windy Nights poetry assignment. (If you were absent, click here for the worksheet.)
--On back of the Windy Nights sheet, answer the following question: what are the ways I would like to grow as a member of this choir?
