As part of the Chorale’s mission to provide music opportunities for children in the Metro West Region, the Chorale has sponsored a children’s choir. This group will be an independent non-profit organization to provide a place for children to join together and learn how to perform and create music.
For the upcoming year, we will be working with the Millis Recreational Department to spread the word and generate interest. Let everyone you know about this great opportunity.
Lelia Tenreyro-Viana is in her 7th year directing the Charles River Children’s Choir. Her professional career began when she was hired as a member of Argentina’s National Chidren’s Choir. Soon after, she began her formal musical studies at the Conservatorio Municipal de Música Manuel de Falla in Buenos Aires, where she studied French Horn, Voice, and Choral Conducting.
In college Lelia was selected to premiere a number of contemporary pieces by composers at Brooklyn College’s Conservatory of Music in New York. She has worked as a vocal technique and language coach at the New York Choral Music Initiative, a program sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Metropolitan Opera Guild.
Currently she teaches Spanish and music at Clyde F. Brown Elementary School in Millis, serves as Director of the Music Ministry, organist, and choir conductor at the Saint Cecilia Church in Ashland, MA., and is a member of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, which performs year-round with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops.
The Charles River Children’s Choir invites all children ages 6 – 10 from Millis and throughout the Metro West Region to join us in a new music program.
The Choir will meet weekly starting in September as we prepare for a performance in December.
The Choir will learn how to read music, hear music and make music together. This program is sponsored by The Charles River Chorale, a 60 piece regional adult choir that performs a holiday and spring concert in Millis. The Children’s Choir will be invited to sing with the CRC twice a year in addition to their stand alone concert.
This combined performance is a truly unique and very valuable opportunity for our children’s musical education.
