Cor Capriccio

Cor Capriccio, our non-auditioned group for children in 2nd through 5th grades, is directed by Elizabeth Clifton, early childhood music specialist. The group meets every Wednesday from 5:30 - 6:30pm. They 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 get 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.

Cor Capriccio begins rehearsals on Wednesday, September 19th at St. John's Lutheran Church in Poughkeepsie and will run through Wednesday, November 15th, concluding with a joint concert with their sister ensemble, Cappella Festiva Treble Choir on Saturday, November 18th. Starting rehearsals again on January 10th, they will perform in concerts on Saturday, February 10th in Skinner Hall of Music at Vassar College and again on Sunday, April 8th with their sister ensembles.
