Music Magic is an enrichment program for six and seven-year old boys who are interested in learning more about music, singing and having fun. This is an eight-week program offered every school semester. Music Magic brings music alive for the boys through the use of movement, singing, musical games and instruments. The boys develop better large muscle coordination, pitch matching, increased focus, rhythm awareness and musicianship. No audition is necessary, just a love of music. To learn more, watch the Music Magic interview with William R. Adams, Founder and Artistic Director on our video clips page.
Training Choir is our introductory choir where techniques in phrasing, enunciation and choral blend are introduced. Boys learn the disciplines of the organization and perform predominantly in the local area. Choirboys move up to either Town or Tour choirs by audition.
Town Choir stresses choral techniques in phrasing, enunciation and multi-part harmonizing. Music becomes more complex. Performances are usually local, although more varied in nature. The Town Choir also competes every spring in a choral festival in New Braunfels, Texas. Placement into Tour Choir is through audition at any time.
As our top-level professional group, the Tour Choir emphasizes extensive choral techniques. Music involves varied tempos, styles and harmonic complexities. Original compositions are commissioned and performed. Performances include weddings, symphony collaborations, commercials, and high profile appearances. Each year the Tour Choir embarks on an extensive summer concert tour. The concert tours are developed around performance schedules and incorporate a closer look at American or foreign history. They have also released numerous CD recordings.
