(pictured above - Cor Capriccio Children's Choir performs at Vassar College's "A Service in Lessons and Carols" 2018) Cor Capriccio Children's Choir, our non-auditioned group for children in 2nd through 6th grades, is directed by Elizabeth Clifton, early childhood music specialist. During the covid19 pandemic, this group meets "virtually" every Wednesday from 5:30 - 6:30pm. The children learn songs from a variety of cultures and in a variety of languages. Cor Capriccio offers many benefits to the young singer. Each week, they exercise their bodies and minds as well as their voices. They learn songs to sing but also develop a deeper understanding of tonality, rhythm, musical form, dynamics, and general musicianship. They play singing games and learn to communicate the meaning of a song as well as the notes on a page. While they sing, they work on such important skills as teamwork and self-discipline.
During the fall semester of 2021, the Trebles performed One in Music with their older counterpart, CF Treble Choir at St. John's Church on Wilbur Avenue in Poughkeepsie. Please click here to watch their lovely performance.
This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.
