This choir is for our youngest singers. Directed by Artistic Director, Francis Stockwell, boys as young as five have a fun time in their once-a-week 45-minute classes where they learn that it takes the whole body to sing. These boys learn motion songs, how to follow directions, and how to get along with each other. They sing at Christmas, in the spring with possibly one or two other appearances.
Rehearsal is on Tuesday evenings from 4:45 to 5:25
The Cadet Choir is for new boys ages seven and up and is the training choir for the touring Viking Choir. Conducted by Francis Stockwell, the boys receive advanced ear training, note reading, and learn to sing in two part harmony. Once they complete their training requirements, the boys are eligible to be invited into the Viking Choir.
The Cadet Choir performs at the Christmas and Spring Concerts with one or two other possible performances. They rehearse Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:45 PM and receive one voice lesson a month.
