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 will meet "virtually" every Wednesday from 5:30 - 6:30pm. They will 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 will exercise their bodies and minds as well as their voices. They will learn songs to sing but will also acquire a deeper understanding of tonality, rhythm, musical form, dynamics, and general musicianship. They will 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 2020, they will work on a musical piece that will be pre-recorded for the annual Lessons & Carols virtual service at Vassar College in December.
