Rainier Youth Choirs

Colla Voce is a program for mostly grades 6-8, though other grade levels may be included.  These treble singers study more challenging repertoire, and are independent singers with excellent fundmental vocal and music reading skills.

A willingness to work hard, practice at home, and the flexibilty to sing different vocal parts characterize Colla Voce singers.  Rehearsals are fast-paced, challenging, and fun.

Colla Voce singers gain confidence in performing while learning advanced theory and high quality repertoire quickly.

'Colla Voce' (cohl'-lah voh'-chay) means 'with the voice' in Italian.
