Primo Coro ("first chorus" - pree-moh koh-ro) is open to boys and girls in grades 4-5 grade. Musical concepts are taught using choral literature, folk songs, folk dance and musical games. Music concepts are taught based on Kodaly principles. Choristers use solfege for melody reading, and the Takadimi system for rhythm reading.
The chorus rehearses Mondays from 4:30-6pm. The choristers perform in our two annual concerts, as well as 2 – 4 additional performances during the season. Past performances have included the National Anthem for the Mets at Citifield, a collaboration with New Jersey State Opera, and a Sharing Day with NJYC Intermediate Chorus and the Hopewell Valley Children’s Chorus.
