Dolce is an auditioned group for high school students who are already enrolled in Academy Singers. Students singing in Dolce must also participate in Academy Singers. Students that show advanced singing technique, ear training, breathing, intonation, reading music, articulation, and performance skills will be selected for this course. The course includes the study of music theory and history in the context of the 2, 3, and 4-part music that is chosen for each season. Challenging repertoire in English and other languages suitable for concert performance and choir competition with solo opportunities will be chosen. A high level of leadership and commitment to musical excellence is expected among singers.
Dolce auditions are held after the first rehearsal and students will sign up during class.
