The Capriccio curriculum strengthens rhythmic and melodic reading skills and teaches healthy vocal production through the beginning stages of the 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; singers may have the opportunity to participate in one additional community performance or event.

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

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

Tuition assistance is available to families who demonstrate financial need.
