Choir “Overtones”

OVERTONES: Older Elementary Choir in English

Overtones is our ensemble for boys and girls enrolled in 3rd, 4th, 5th grades of elementary school. We meet weekly for 1 hour and 15 minutes to perfect the repertoire for the concerts planned in the academic year. Our pieces reflect our increasing vocal maturity and experience with reading music. As the core performing ensemble, we also spend time and effort on developing our interpretative and communication skills so that we can best share our joy for singing with our audiences.

Weekly rehearsal

Thursdays 17:15 18:30

Overtones meet once a week from September through May with breaks scheduled for Christmas, Carnival, and Easter, as well as national and local public holidays.

Rehearsals and workshops are held in our rehearsal space at Via Solferino 17, whereas our performances and their accompanying dress rehearsals take place throughout Milan. A full calendar with all our activities’ dates and locations is available to students on our private Google Classroom.

Special workshops

In addition to our regularly scheduled weekly rehearsals, we also hold special workshops throughout the year at which the full YCM chorus and our Musical Theatre section come together. These two-hour sessions are much more than general rehearsals. Expert guests are invited to share their knowledge and experience. Team-building exercises are run to forge lasting friendships and a shared sense of belonging. And plenty of time is devoted to having FUN!

Performances throughout the artistic season

YCM believes strongly in giving our choristers multiple opportunities to perform. We want our young artists to experience the sense of satisfaction that is felt as a result of hours of acquiring new skills and overcoming challenges to gain mastery. These performances are peak experiences for choristers and audiences alike, showcasing weeks, months, and even years of musical preparation and dedication.
