Wescustago Singers

About the Choir  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA                                                 

Wescustago Singers is an SATB choir. Inclusion of the maturing female voice, alto and soprano, and the male changed voice, tenor and bass expands the palette of choral experience to include standards in the SATB repertoire.  These singers will advance their choral skills through a continued ear training and sight singing program.  They will perform a diverse repertoire including a capella and accompanied works in various styles.  Wescustago Singers rehearse weekly at Mast Landing School in Freeport on Mondays from 6:30-8:30pm.  One extended Saturday rehearsal per semester will be scheduled.  This choir begins its season with a weekend retreat for group building and choral training.  Previous choral experience is required.
