Sara Di'Salvo, Chorus Teacher
Cold Spring School Chorus has been an integral part of music enrichment at Cold Spring School for the last 30 years. The chorus program is open to students in 4th-6th grades and meets before and after school each week beginning in September and concluding in early May. We meet Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:30-8:15 am and Wednesday afternoons from 2:30-3:15 pm. Through rehearsals, community support, and family commitment, we are able to deliver this outstanding program to our students and to Santa Barbara County.
Throughout the duration of the year, students learn to sight-sing, sing harmony, and sing pieces in various languages including German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Latin. Students learn the value of teamwork, how to be critical listeners, how to perform, and the responsibilities that come with group participation. They also have opportunities to connect with the community at large and the larger world of choral singing through field trips, choral performances, and choral exchanges with other children's choruses.
