Unchanged voices, Grades 2-6
Singers learn appropriate repertoire and musical literacy skills in the CYC Apprentice Choirs, the preparatory ensemble for the youngest singers. Instructional goals include giving each child the necessary skills for a lifelong appreciation of choral singing. CYV now has TWO locations: Central (Oklahoma City University) and Moore (Capitol Hill Baptist Church).
In the Apprentice Choirs students:
- appear regularly on CYV concerts
- tour within central Oklahoma
- receive a strong Kodály Method* of musical literacy and choral performance skills.
* Studies have shown that the Kodály Method improves intonation, rhythm skills, music literacy, and the ability to sing in increasingly complex parts.
