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.
Academy and Girl Choir apparel is available for purchase online now through November 2.
