Lyrica is an auditioned choir for young women who love to sing, who want to give a polished performance, and who appreciate beautiful classical vocal repertoire. Lyrica members are focused, committed, energetic, and appreciate learning from professional adult musicians who share the same passion. There is a mini voice lesson every week. The warm ups and vocalises produce the sound Lyrica is known for, and there is a component of the Dalcroze philosophy in every rehearsal.  The goal is creating a choir that is comfortable, cohesive, and in tune mentally and physically with each other.

Musical literature for Lyrica includes beautiful classical and seasonal music. Lyrica sings in two, three, and four part harmony. Attributes expected are graceful stage presence and manners, total focus of the music at hand, recall and application of proper vocal production and technique learned during warm ups and vocalises.

Lyrica meets at the CSU - P campus on Mondays, in the tiered choir room from 5:00 - 6:30 in the Music/Art Building. Mrs. Kathryn C. Ward is our wonderful weekly accompanist.  Performances are given only in acoustically appropriate venues. Lyrica is usually accompanied by professional adult musicians, performing with string quartets, brass quintets, woodwinds, harp, pipe organ, percussion, and piano played majestically by Kathy Ward.

The concert attire is a beautiful dress in shades of heathered blue, purple and cranberry. Members should be ready to wear their hair drawn back away from the face and to have closed toe, low heeled black dress shoes.

There is a limit of two absences per semester from rehearsal. The tuition is $75.00 per semester, with a sibling discount of $25.00 for one sister. Tuition is paid prior to the start of rehearsals.

Lyrica members reside in Pueblo and Pueblo West, also Canon City, Colorado Springs, and Colorado City. The singers are from public, private, church and home schools. Many of our members perform with their own school choir and band, as well as outside theater programs. The youth benefit from an enriching experience working and performing with other talented singers and skilled professional adult musicians. Many lasting friendships are happily formed with other like minded young musicians.
