A new choir taught by Sarah Cane, who leads singing classes at Inverness School.
Singing in a choir is a wonderful way for kids to begin their musical training. There are a multitude of benefits, helping them to develop musically, socially, and intellectually. We will begin to read and write music, and sing in harmony with new friends. Our rehearsals will be part vocal training, part musicianship, part games, part rehearsing pieces, and maybe even a little dancing thrown in. All elementary school ages welcome. Come sing with us! Contact Debbie Daly at Sound Orchard (415) 663- 5018 for more information and register on-line at soundorchard.com.

We will examine trials at sea in Melville's “Billy Budd” and the “Mutiny on the Bounty Court-Martial” and enjoy the Tracy and Hepburn attorney characters in "Adam's Rib."
