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.
Starlights is the entry level chorus for girls, ages 9 through middle school. The audition process is quick and simple and you do not need to bring a prepared audition piece. The conductor will listen for the singer's ability to match pitches and learn a section of one of the current songs in our repertoire.
During rehearsals, the instruction will include vocal technique, ear training, and music fundamentals. After one semester or at age 10, girls may audition for the advanced chorus for their age group, Celestial Voices, or remain in the Starlights program.
Starlights has performed throughout Marin County at Farmer’s Markets, the Marin County Fair, Northgate Mall, as well as caroling during the holiday season at Ghirardelli Square in downtown San Francisco. Throughout the semester they also perform for retirement homes and health care facilities in order to share with others the gift of song. Two concerts for the general public are also scheduled during the year: a special Holiday Concert with all of SingersMarin’s youth and adult choruses in December, and a combined youth chorus concert in May.
In Starlights, these young girls begin to develop their potential as musicians while making new friends along the way. The lessons of professionalism and poise, as well as the relationships that these young ladies forge during their time with Starlights can last a lifetime.
