The Preparatory Choir is our introductory ensemble, established in 2017 to fill the need of younger singers who have not had musical training.

Children in grades 2 through 5 are given an introduction to sight-reading, and instruction in basic music theory. Singers will learn techniques that are safe and suitable for the young voice. We prepare them for advancement into upper ensembles with instruction in choral and performance etiquette.  

Although not performance ready for the music stage at Strathmore Hall, the Prepartory Choir will have at least two formal performances during our choral season and rehearses weekly on Mondays from 5:30 - 6:30 PM at the Music Center at Strathmore.
