Ensembles

About our Training Ensembles

Young people ages 5 and up rehearse weekly during the academic year (September – May) in ensembles suited to their ability level. Singers in our earliest ensembles do not need prior experience to join – development of musicianship and skills is part of every rehearsal. Children in the training ensembles will have the chance to perform in the brand-new, world-class Tobin Center – twice! – this season. Financial aid applications will be available at placements. Please visit our FAQ if you still have any questions!
