Singcopation (Grades 8-12 Mixed Auditioned)

Robin Anderson, Conductor

Audra Sergel, Pianist

This group will learn jazz, blues, and popular repertoire. Singers will learn healthy, stylistic sound production and creative vocal improvisation in a fun, fast-paced environment designed to encourage group and solo singing.  All members of Singcopation will also be required to sing in either Boys’ or Girls’ Choirs.  Singcopation will meet 3:45-4:25 p.m. every Sunday afternoon.

In the CYC system, there is a spot for any child who desires to sing!

We truly believe in the importance of providing a quality vocal education for every child. Multitudes of studies show the positive impact group singing can have on an individual and we want everyone to have the opportunity to be part of CYC regardless of their ability level or zip code. CYC is an extension of its parent partner, Choral Arts Alliance of Missouri, and is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, registered with the State of Missouri.

At CYC, there are no vocal auditions required to join. Students need only apply and they will be placed in one of our five choral ensembles.

Location: All rehearsals take place at Columbia Independent School (1801 N. Stadium Blvd). Park in the Main Entrance parking lot located at the north side of the building. Enter through the main doors where you will be warmly greeted by our Choir Coordinator, Kara Smith. Rehearsals take place in Rooms 404 and 408 in the Fine Arts wing of the building.

Tuition: Keeping costs low is an important component of the CYC program. Our tuition is $90/year or $50/semester. Scholarships and multi-child discounts  are available upon request. There will be a $10 additional fee for singers who are invited to join any auditioned ensemble.
