Cantilena is our ensemble intended as an introductory experience to choral singing for boys and girls who are 6 to 10 years of age. Basic skills in musical understanding and performance begin here and provide a wonderful framework on which children can build. The goal of our once weekly rehearsals is to instill a love of singing. A focus on unison song, an encouraging atmosphere, high energy activities and selected performance opportunities create a pleasurable experience for all.
