Special Short Season
This is a special short-season project of The American Children of SCORE (String, Choral, Orff, Recorder Ensemble) which has been on hiatus since the spring of 2014. This nationally esteemed organization, now in its 21st year, is a unique performing musical group for children in the third through sixth grades. SCORE is comprised of children from the northern Piedmont region of Virginia who have been selected by audition. All children are trained in weekly rehearsals to sing chorally. In addition they are trained to play recorder, Orff instruments (xylophones, glockenspiels, drums, etc.), and/or traditional string instruments. Violins, violas, and cellos, along with voices, recorders and Orff instruments combine in arrangements that have been created specifically for this instrumentation and age group. The sounds are elemental, and the possibilities are endless.
Special Age Range
Open to students in Grades 3-6
Auditions week of January 4-8 classes meet January 16 – March 19 (10 classes) culminating in a public performance on Saturday, March 19.
