Members of Piccolo Lasso become proficient at reading music, singing in ensemble and solo singing. They grow in confidence just by participating. The musical skills, improved focus and concentration, experience as team members and team leaders developed as children extend to all other areas of their lives and, for those who demonstrate exceptional talent, prepare them for an adult life as a musician. Choristers of today become the accomplished, confident, caring and creative citizens of tomorrow.
