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 will join with their sister ensemble, Cappella Festiva Treble Choir on Saturday, January 12th for a joint concert. Starting rehearsals again on January 16th, they will perform in another joint concert with their sister ensemble on Saturday, May 11th. Both concerts will be at Christ Church, 20 Carroll Street, Poughkeepsie.The registration form is located at the bottom of this page.
