The Vocal Arts Academy of Milwaukee invites youth in grades 3–12 to join for our 2013–2014 season beginning in September.
Led by veteran instructors Emily Crocker and Charyl Granatella, our goal is to create an environment of joy, of excellence, of encouragement and of restorative energy—a positive experience that will enhance your lives and lift up your spirits through collective music making. Together, Mrs. Crocker and Mrs. Granatella possess many years of experience in working with young singers and a deep understanding of how children learn music. This experience extends from the classroom onto the concert stage and beyond.
In 2012–2013, the Young Artists Choir (gr. 7–12) explored a variety of music in three concerts and collaborative performances with Present Music and the Festival City Symphony, including classical music by César Franck, Felix Mendelssohn, J. S. Bach, W. A. Mozart, Antonio Vivaldi, Randall Thompson and popular selections by Stevie Nicks, Taylor Swift, the band fun. and other lighter selections.
Our Apprentice Ensemble (grades 3–6), in addition to performing with the Festival City Symphony, has performed master compositions for children&s voices and experienced solo singing opportunities.
