Amadeus Chorale Youth Singers
The singers report at year-end evaluation, that they come back year after year because Amadeus is fun. And Dr. Howard Potter, of the Eastman Community School called the director, Darla Bair, a "kid magnet." She doesn't understand why the children think learning Music Theory, performance etiquette, life skills of sharing, mentoring, and social interaction, and proper vocal technique are "fun," but apparently there's a great blend of enJOYment with technical teaching going on here. If your son or daughter sings well, our Board of Directors wants your child to be singing with us. Now click on our website to see and hear us!
