OUR PHILOSOPHY...

OUR MISSION
.............................................
The Allegro Choral Academy is dedicated to providing a comprehensive vocal
music experience to young people through the achievement of musical excellence
in an environment that nurtures creativity, teamwork and the love of singing.

............................................
The curriculum at ACA is structured both to challenge and inspire students.  In
addition to two performances throughout the year, singers are trained in
sight-reading, ear training, musicianship, vocal development and ensemble skills.

The Allegro Choral Academy expects its students to be positive leaders in their
respective school and community music classes and ensembles.  ACA supports
and supplements the vibrant and successful music programs in the area's schools
and communities of faith.  Although based in the southern metro communities of
Minneapolis/St. Paul, ACA is open to all singers in grades 2-8.

In addition to its musical and educational mission, ACA strives to offer a portion
of its concert proceeds to a predetermined charity.  By doing this, the Academy
not only helps a worthy cause, but it also teaches students, firsthand, music's
power to positively change our local and global communities. To date, Allegro
concerts have raised over $6,000 in the past few years.  To view charities that

Allegro has two campuses to meet the schedules and geography of its members.  
Singers may choose to attend the North Campus at Rosemount United Methodist
Church or the South Campus at Trinity Church in Lakeville.  The two campuses
combine for concerts.

More than half of ACA's budget is derived from tuition that each student pays
($345-$425 for the entire year, depending on which ensemble the student is a
part of).  The remaining funds are generated by business partners, ticket and CD
sales, personal donors and grants.  There are a limited number of need-based
scholarships available.
