We offer young singers (K-12th grade) a choral experience based on the approach fostered by Zoltan Kodály, which has produced tremendous success with children’s choirs.  All choirs rehearse at the Maple Leaf Lutheran Church in North Seattle’s Maple Leaf neighborhood.

  • CHILDREN's ChORUS
  • INTERLUDES-A
  • INTERLUDES-B
  • CHAMBER SINGERS

The Interludes-B choir meets along with the Interludes-A choir on Wednesdays, then stays for an additional 45 minutes to work on a separate repertoire all their own.  They have performed at the 2000 Organization of American Kodály Educators, Benaroya Hall, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and the Festival of Trees in Tacoma as well as many local music festivals.

An audition is required for entry and older beginners are accepted at this level.

SKILLS

Interludes-B members will learn two- and three-part singing as well as more advanced sight-reading skills. Singers receive instruction in language studies and the written theory program is continued. This level includes children in the 3rd through 7th grade range.

EXPECTATIONS

The importance of each members’ responsibilities, particularly in their individual preparation for each rehearsal and performance is stressed.  Singers at this level are expected to practice their music at home daily for 20-25 minutes and work on theory at least once a week between rehearsals.

REHEARSAL

Interludes-B meets on Wednesdays from 5:00 to 7:00. This rehearsal is available for observation upon special request.

SCHEDULE

The Interludes-B Choir begins rehearsals in early September.  Get the full 2017-2018 Schedule here soon.
