Students in red dresses, singing on choral risers.


The Allegretto curriculum strengthens the basics of choral singing. Singers learn basic rhythmic and melodic reading skills, healthy vocal production and breathing skills, and how to sing as a choir in unison and two parts. Allegretto performs on both the fall and spring Girl Choir concerts in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel, plus one community performance.

Auditions for Allegretto are held in April for the following academic year. Please fill out our interest form to receive audition information next spring.
