The Treble Choir continues the work begun in the Preparatory Choir. Under director Darlene Sang, this choir enjoys working on two part singing, score study, musical terminology and general musicianship. This choir performs at the Holiday Concert and the Spring Concert at Chenery Auditorium.
Every two years, the Treble Choir sings in the Nutcracker Ballet with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra and the Ballet Arts Ensemble. In 2013, the Treble and Concert Choirs performed Carmina Burana with the KSO conductor Raymond Harvey at Miller Auditorium. C.J. Gianakans of The Kalamazoo Gazette said “the Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus played a small but pivotal role in the work’s (Carmina Burana) third movement, lending a befitting purity of tone. Their voices were delightful and accurate – kudos.”
At the end of the season, choristers can chose to remain in the Treble Choir or audition to move to the next level, which is the Concert Choir.
The Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus thanks to attorney Mark Craig of Kalamazoo for his generous support of the 2015-2016 Treble Choir.
