Tamariki is Kokopelli’s youngest ensemble. With an emphasis on play and discovery, this group explores singing and music in a secure but exciting environment. In a typical season, Tamariki’s members rehearse in four separate groups of 25 singers or fewer, combining for performances into Kokopelli’s largest children's choir with around 70 members. ‘Tamariki’ (tah-mah-REE-kee) is the Maori word for ‘children’—because nothing goes better together than children and music, after all!
In 2020-2021, in accordance with recommendations from Alberta Health, Tamariki will be offered virtually. We are absolutely delighted to announce that Tamariki Online will be taught by Kokopelli alum and elementary music specialist Amy Voyer.
Come join Tamariki as we keep our love of music alive from our own homes! Share in the joy of singing as we learn new music, play singing games, build our singing and musicianship skills, enjoy rhythm and movement, and more!
Registration for Tamariki will be open very soon!
Being part of Tamariki and the whole Kokopelli Choir Association is like being part of a big family.
Tamariki is open to registration for all children in the group's age range - no audition! Registration for the 2020-2021 season coming soon!
The group will meet on Monday afternoons via secure Zoom link from 5-5:30 PM, with a maximum enrollment of 25 children. The program is intended for children aged 7 to 9 years (must by 7 by January 1, 2021) but children aged 5 and 6 (must by 5 by January 1, 2021) may register so long as a parent attends the sessions with them weekly.
