Primi Passi ("first steps"- pree-mee pa-see) is a non-auditioned choral music experience for boys and girls in 2nd and 3rd grade. It is a wonderful way for children to explore their interest in music and singing, and may be a gateway to other opportunities in the New Jersey Youth Chorus.
Primi Passi meets in Chatham on Tuesdays, from 4:30 – 5:30 PM There is an 8-week class for 3rd graders in the Fall, and an 8-week class for 2nd and 3rd graders in the Spring. Each lesson is devoted to joyful music-making and active learning about basic choral technique and music reading skills through song, musical games and folk dance. The songs are specially selected for this age group.
An application for the Primi Passi program for the 2017-18 will be posted in September, 2017.
