Blue Tree Songbirds is an all-ages neighborhood children’s choir with open enrollment every three months. Once enrolled, students commit to a quarter of rehearsals and performances (October-December, January-March & April-June) culminating in one main performance and other volunteer performances such as holiday caroling and singing at local nursing homes.
A typical rehearsal includes vocal warm-ups, physical/movement activities, and of course, singing! Rehearsals are an hour and a half long on Sunday evenings, from 5:30pm-7:00pm.
Performances are free and open to the public. The choir showcases songs revolving around a theme worked on over the quarter (each quarter has a new theme). Each student receives a Blue Tree Songbirds T-shirt (included in the enrollment fee).
While always working toward a performance, the focus of the choir is to provide a unique musical experience by fostering confidence and camaraderie among students through working together on music they love, while taking ownership of their own individual parts. Students have the opportunity to audition for special parts and have a say in choosing some of the repertoire and group choreography.
Songbirds is $85/quarter for all current Blue Tree students (students must currently be enrolled in private lessons at Blue Tree) and $100/quarter for non-Blue Tree students. Enrollment deadline is the Saturday prior to the first rehearsal of each new quarter. Check our calendar for information and dates.
