Columbia Choirs of Metropolitan Seattle




Young singers are introduced to the joys of singing at a young age in Prima. Each week, they experience a joyful, cooperative approach to learning about music through singing songs, moving to music, playing games, listening, performing and improvising. They are introduced to the musical concepts of melody, rhythm, tone quality, and expression, through a variety of fun activities. All young children are welcome to join Prima and no audition is required.

COVID-19 vaccination is required for all staff and members over the age of 12. In-person activities will be in accordance with CDC, federal, and state safety guidelines. Visit our safe-singing guidelines for more information.
