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 2011–2012, we explored a variety of choral literature, including music of master composers Dietrich Buxtehude and Niccola Porpora and contemporary composers Randall Thompson, Morten Lauridsen, Gwyneth Walker, Craig Hella Johnson and Noël Goemanne along with lighter selections by Gilbert & Sullivan, Johann Strauss, Sara Bareilles and the Beatles.
Our Apprentice Ensemble (grades 3–6) has performed master compositions for children's voices, and performed with the Festival City Symphony in their Pajama Jamboree holiday concert.
