The “Stars” of SingersMarin are the youth choruses. Divided by age levels and experience, these ensembles teach valuable musical skills through a repertoire of varied musical styles, building confidence in performance as they share their gift of song with others. The singers are accepted into the chorus through an audition process.
Twinkling Stars is the entry level chorus, offered in the spring of each year, for boys and girls, age 5 - 7. During their first rehearsal the instructor will be looking for their willingness to participate with the group, listening for their musical potential and above their love of singing.
Emphasis is placed on learning traditional songs, including American and multi-cultural folk songs and popular classics. Some new compositions are also a part of the mix. Several performances occur at the end of the semester and usually include singing at the malls (The Village or the Corte Madera Town Center), and along the race course at the Marin Human Race. They will also share their gift of song with the elderly at several local retirement homes. These pre-performances prepare them for their final big moment at Spring Concert with the combined youth choruses in May.
Rehearsals are held once a week, on Mondays or Tuesdays in Mill Valley, or Thursdays in San Rafael. Instruction during this time includes some basic music fundamentals, ear training, and vocal technique through warm-ups, learning of songs, and musical games.

As a member of our new Vocal Arts Academy, there is the option of enrolling into our annual program by paying monthly. This entitles singers to our full program and the benefit of 6 private voice lessons that can be taken at any point during the year. Singers can still pay by semester if preferred.
