A Word from our Founder
Jan Pedersen Schiff
Welcome to the second half of our 2015/2016 Concert Season, "Glowing Harmonies." Spring and Summer concerts are now the focal point. Wings of Song, our women's chorus will join with the teenage girls, les etoiles in presenting "Harmonic Gems," a concert of filled with lush harmonies to feed your soul. This will be followed by a concert of the combined youth choruses, "Radiant Spring," featuring each of the ensembles singing seperately and together, ranging in age from 4 to 17, with songs to celebrate the spirit of the season. Summertime is just around the corner, and our popular summer chorus, Joyful Sound, begins rehearsals mid-June featuring a program of music by the Beatles, "Here Comes the Sun!" Families are encouraged to participate together.
We are looking forward to a significant expansion and growth in all of our choruses in the coming year as we get the word out about the high quality experience we offer through our choral singing. These are good times for Singers Marin. One of the biggest changes this year is redefining our youth program as: Singers Marin Vocal Arts Academy. We feel that the work we are doing with children is vitally important to the future lives of this next generation. Choral singing develops so much more than just musical proficiency. It gives the children a wide range of vital life skills: confidence, deportment, stage presence, focus, listening skills, mental agility, team work, a sense of achievement and self-worth.
Our newest class is for very young singers, (aged 4-5), as we recognize the importance of developing the musical brain at an earlier age. We wish to capture the enthusiasm and sheer joy of singing at this age. A continuation of this class will be offered this summer. Children, 6 - 13 will have the opportunity to join us for Summer Camp. We are dedicated to developing the individual talents of all our youth, as they grow and become strong singers and valuable contributors to society.
