Developing artistic excellence through choral music.

The Miami Children’s Chorus has provided high quality singing instruction in Miami-Dade County since 1965. MCC offers children the opportunity to study and perform traditional and experimental forms of choral music. We provide a wide variety of performing opportunities for our choristers. Children participate – by audition – in one of three levels of ensemble.

 

BEGINNING CHORUS

REHEARSALS: 
Wednesday
5:15pm - 6:30pm


REHEARSAL LOCATION
Riviera Presbyterian Church
5275 Sunset Drive

THE BEGINNING CHORUS is for children in their initial stages of vocal development. Choristers can spend up to two years in this choir. Here they will be immediately engaged in singing experiences through imitation. Their training will include developing vocal skills, musicianship and sight singing skills. The repertoire will include rounds and canons, folk songs, chorales, and patriotic songs.

 

INTERMEDIATE CHORUS

REHEARSALS:
Monday & Wednesday
6:00pm - 7:45pm


REHEARSAL LOCATION
Riviera Presbyterian Church
5275 Sunset Drive

THE INTERMEDIATE CHORUS is for children who are continuing their musical development through experiencing more challenging repertoire and skill sets. Their repertoire includes the MCC core literature as well as compositions in two-parts, three-parts, accompanied, and unaccompanied. Choristers at this level must demonstrate a practicing knowledge of singing posture, effective breathing for singing, and principles of diction. They must also demonstrate an evolving understanding of musicianship – i.e. music theory, sight-singing and performance skills.

 

ADVANCED CHORUS

REHEARSALS:
Monday & Wednesday
6:30pm - 8:30pm


REHEARSAL LOCATION
Riviera Presbyterian Church
5275 Sunset Drive

THE ADVANCED CHORUS is comprised of children who are ready to experience and demonstrate a high level of musicianship and performance standard. The repertoire includes the MCC core literature; newly commissioned compositions; works for chorus and chamber orchestra (and other instrumental groupings); opera; musical theater and music requiring extended vocal techniques. Members in the advanced level chorus must be able to retain complex melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic material.
