3rd-6th grade (boys)
Ragazzi is a choir level just for boys and is the latest addition to Columbia Choirs, an international award-winning music education organization established in 1984. Boys in Ragazzi will sing a wide variety of songs in high-energy, weekly rehearsals and will develop a greater understanding of musicianship and singing technique. Skills learned in Ragazzi will be shared through performances locally in our concert series, regionally for public and private events and in retirement communities.
Joining Ragazzi requires demonstrating ability to focus and carry a tune in a clear voice through a brief audition.
