We are thrilled to introduce our new curriculum for the youth choir ministry. The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) is an international acclaimed program that guides singers and choirs to develop vocal skills, musical knowledge and repertoire. Students will be informally assessed by the directors and a badge/ribbon and medal is awarded once the singer has reached the targets and finished the workbook for each level.
(Grades 3 through above)
Following the RSCM VOICE for LIFE curriculum (Royal School of Church Music), our students will learn what it means to participate in a church choir. They will explore vocal technique and part singing and are exposed to sacred repertoire, music theory, liturgy, and worship. Singers will sing in church at least once a month including Christmas and Easter morning. They will also have the opportunity to participate in the annual youth presentation of the Nativity Play, Stations of the Cross during Lent. Cantate Singers will be encouraged to participate in the RSCM Winterfest and a summer courses to meet other students from around the city and country who also participate in the program. Our advanced students will have the opportunity to be a part of the Jr. Cantor program. 2nd grade students can audition for the program. A small participation fee is required.
