girl choir singers in red tops and long black skirts, on choral risers in front of the organ, conductor in front on stage and grand piano with pianist at the side


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.
