MUSICAL ACTIVITY OF THE
"PUERI CANTORES" CHOIR OF VICENZA


The “Pueri Cantores” Choir is formed of children and adolescents who enjoy music and spend their spare time studying song.

The choir has schools in Isola Vicentina, Lonigo and is specialized in teaching music and song to small children. The purpose of the school is to create a choir of children and young people in order to assist the development of musical culture and training through an increased awareness of music and in particular of both choral and individual singing.

The school researches and tests singing techniques and new didactic methods for teaching music to children. It also offers a complete training for the physical and mental development of the young people who grow up within it. By studying and performing very “difficult” music, the choir aims to educate young people, teaching them to think for themselves and assisting in the formation of their character.

The school offers courses at two levels:

    1. The introductory course where children take their first steps in the world of music by studying music and song.

    2. The advanced courses where pupils are trained to perform a wide range of music at a professional level within the choir itself.

In both courses pupils attend one individual singing lesson where they study voice technique, and one or two group singing lessons which lead to the formation of a treble voice choir at a professional level. The musical training offered is based on methods that have been developed especially for young people. These pay particular attention to involving the whole body “action of sound” and act in the body in different ways according to the position required and the exercise involved. Rhythmic training for example, which deals with the sub-division of time and movement is performed using exercises based on rhythm and movement. These encourage the mobility of the entire body, releasing its tension and coordinating its movement with the rhythm of the music.
