The Young Singers

Amanda Sali, Conductor

The Young Singers is a treble choir composed of elementary, middle school and high school voices. The mission of the choir is to provide a quality music education experience focusing on healthy vocal production, music reading skills, and musical artistry through performance. The choir has performed at regional and national conferences of the American Choral Director's Association, the Music Educators National Conference and the National Orff-Schulwerk Association.

A former Children's Choir member herself, Amanda Sali has returned to Stetson University as director of the Young Singers. Amanda sang with the choir for seven years. She became a music major at Stetson University where she conducted the Children's Choir as an intern. After earning a bachelor of music education degree in choral music, she earned a master of music in choral conducting from the University of North Texas, where she was named the Outstanding Graduate Student in Conducting and Ensembles.

Orff-Schulwerk for 2014-15

Kris Light, Level III Certified Orff Instructor

What is Orff?

This internationally recognized approach, developed by the German composer and educator Carl Orff, combines movement, singing and the playing of instruments, such as xylophones and glockenspiels. Carl Orff believed that music can and should be an immediate and active experience. The rhythmic Orff approach emphasizes the value of group performance and is filled with clapping, moving and keeping a beat with anything near at hand. All the fun things children ages 3 to 9 love to do!
