TAMARIKI

[ta-ma-REE-kee]



Tamariki is Kokopelli’s youngest ensemble, entering its sixth season in September 2017. With an emphasis on play and discovery, this group explores singing and music in a secure but exciting environment. Tamariki offers a focus on thorough and excellent music education, with singers learning about healthy vocal production, the body-voice connection, and vibrant performance presence as well as a strong emphasis on musical literacy, music theory, and sightsinging skills. As with all our ensembles, Tamariki provides a secure and accepting social environment where all singers feel their importance as members of the group. Most importantly, Tamariki has fun and creates exciting music! ‘Tamariki’ (tah-mah-REE-kee) is the Maori word for ‘children’ -- because nothing goes better together than children and music, after all!

Tamariki has two conductors. The Monday sections are led by founding conductor Rachel Beach, and accompanied by Bryan LeGrow. Wednesday's groups are conducted by Natasha Lybbert and accompanied by Vicky Berg.

Being part of Tamariki and the whole Kokopelli Choir Association is like being part of a big family.
