Vivace! Choral Program is open for auditions for our 2013-14 (our 15th Anniversary) season for all three choirs.

 

Our Vivace! Kids choir is made up of students primarily in late elementary to early middle school grades, with some exceptional and focused 3rd graders with unchanged voices. The Vivace! Mixed choir is our mass choir, which consists of students from middle school to high school grades, changed/changing voices and with general music knowledge. And finally our Cathedrals choir is our flagship choir, which consists of students in late middle school to college grades with changed voices and novice to advanced music knowledge.

 

Through the Vivace! Choral Program your child will develop musical knowledge and skills, and as they progress through the program, these skills will continue to develop. The foundation of Vivace! is based in our mentoring program, elementary music specialist and choral conductors throughout the Bethel School District are mentors in Vivace! so there is a continuity of learning that begins at Vivace! and continues to the schools and vice versa. Also, there is mentoring that occurs in our choristers as well, the Cathedrals choir, will mentor our Mixed choir and in turn our Mixed choir mentors our Kids choir mentors.

Vivace! choirs have been featured in concert at The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and The Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.; the Abbey Bach Festival in Mt. Angel, Oregon; and in cathedrals from Seattle to San Francisco along America’s scenic West Coast. The Cathedrals Choir performed in Austria at the Mozart Festival in Salzburg and Vienna, with additional formal concerts at Melk Abbey and the Matthias Church in Budapest, Hungary. The choir has also been featured in the Seattle Symphony’s Benaroya Hall and Tacoma’s Pantages Theater. Singers have performed with the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Harvey Felder and under the direction of Dr. Geoffrey Boers of the University of Washington. Vivace! choirs have also been featured in concert with the inimitable Peter Schickele, a.k.a. P.D.Q. Bach. They have appeared several times on classical radio broadcasts and have been featured in Seattle’s Argosy Christmas Ship Festivals.

The Vivace! Choral Program offers a continuous and comprehensive 4th-12th grade mixed choral experience for students as a supplement to the musical offerings of the regular school day.

Vivace! uses a strong educational mentoring model, in which each choir is “mentored” by students from the next level in the organization. Additionally, a small number of novice educators and college students who plan to teach music are selected as section leaders for the Cathedrals Choir.

While students receive instruction in vocal technique, theory, history, movement and performance, Vivace! provides young music educators the opportunity to practice and hone their artistic skills in a nurturing environment. The choristers perform a wide variety of music; from the sophisticated motet to satisfyingly silly and choreographed pieces. Always delightful, Vivace! choirs invite, inspire and entertain all.
