Apprentice Chorus members are chosen from auditions held in May, August and early September of each year. The Apprentice Chorus is comprised of approximately 65 choristers from grades 2 and 3. This entry-level chorus for new members is a readiness program in which the basics of vocal production and musicianship are presented in a manner suitable for the age group. The emphasis is on musicianship training as developed by Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly.
Limited public performances are scheduled during the year, including annual Holiday and Spring Concerts; however, the emphasis at this level is preparatory training.
The Early Birds rehearse from 4:20 - 5:20 and the Late Birds from 5:30 - 6:30.
