The Cantabile curriculum reinforces rhythmic and melodic reading skills and explores a wide variety of music written for advanced treble choirs. Singers perform on both the fall and spring Girl Choir concerts, and in the Fox Valley community as opportunities arise.

Students registered for Academy ensembles are also expected to participate in a curricular (during the school day, for credit) performing musical ensemble when available; Cantabile should not substitute for curricular music programs.

Auditions for Cantabile are held in April for the following academic year. Auditions for the 2019-20 season are closed.  Please fill out our interest form to receive information about auditions next spring.

Tuition assistance is available to families who demonstrate financial need.
