Most boys and girls accepted into the North Carolina Boys Choir and the North Carolina Girls Choir will spend time initially in the Training Choir. This choir is a mixed choir in that it is for both girls and boys who are committing to developing their vocal skills and launching into a relationship with a performing choral organization. Participants in the Training Choir focus on developing good choral tone, proper breathing techniques for singing, notation reading, and beautiful unison singing. They venture into some two-part music and “partner songs” but primarily focus on building strong and healthy vocal technique while acquiring a love for choral music in this unique integrated arts program.
- Training Choir usually rehearses on Mondays, 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM.
- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Training Choir is on a modified rehearsal schedule. They currently have an in-person outdoor rehearsal on Mondays, 5:30-6:00, and an online rehearsal Thursdays, 5:30-6:00.
