Youth and Adult Greek Choir Programs
Greek vocalist Panayota Haloulakou will lead two new Greek choirs at Maliotis Cultural Center starting on January 7, 2019: a youth choir (ages 6 and up) and an adult choir. The two groups will be meeting weekly on Mondays at 6:30-7:30pm (youth) and 7:30-9:30pm (adult).
If you are a parent who desires for your child to be part of a creative musical community, do not hesitate to try this out. The music will be carefully selected from a diverse repertoire of Greek art songs (“entechna”) as well as traditional songs from the islands and the mainland. Class will include body awareness exercises and stretches, a warm-up/creative play with the young voices, and learning the songs together. Music reading skills are not required for this class, as we will be learning the music by ear.
If you are an adult who already sings in a choir or has never sung in public before and who would like to explore your voice, learn new Greek songs, and make music with others, join the adult group. The only prerequisite for this class is your love for Greek music and/or singing, as well as your desire to connect with others. Our values include friendship, encouragement, open-mindedness, compassion, and our goal is to build a strong musical community. This is a non-competitive environment.
Fee for the 2019 spring semester is $100 for the youth group and $150 for the adult group. For more details please watch the video below.
Mark your calendars! Next Monday the 14th of January will be open house at the Maliotis Cultural Center for the Choir Programs. Vocalist/composer Panayota Haloulakou will answer any questions regarding the adult and youth choirs. You are invited to attend, ask questions and also participate in a short session that will include a warm-up for the body and the voice and also learning a Greek song. These sessions (6:30 pm for the youth choir and 7:30 pm for the adult choir) are open to anyone who is curious about the new programs and would like to have a trial before committing to them. The events are free and open to ages 6-106.
