Brooklyn Youth Chorus offers in-school programs to help students discover their true voice and begin to learn the art of singing.
Public School Intensive Program
Working together over the course of the 12- to 15-week program, students in grades 3-5 are exposed to the three primary elements of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus curriculum: vocal technique, musicianship and performance. Students are taught by a Brooklyn Youth Chorus conductor and sing music which represents music of different cultures, styles and genres. Musical elements such as rhythm and pitch are introduced through the music being learned. Students deepen their musical and vocal understanding as they learn new repertoire that will be performed as a group.
5-week Ready-Set-Sing! Program
Brooklyn Youth Chorus offers a 5-week workshop to area schools to help potential choristers learn the art of auditioning. Choristers will be introduced to basic vocal technique including posture and breathing techniques, participate in mock auditions with Brooklyn Youth Chorus faculty and learn more about auditioning for the Chorus. The 5-week program includes a special audition held at the school so students can join the Chorus the following semester.
