Ms. Alma Richeh will be teaching this class.
She has studied classical Arabic and opera singing in Syria.
For 8 years she was the conductor of Al Farah Choir, a national choir in Damascus, Syria.
Ms. Richeh conducted the Farah Choir’s youth’s division. She led the choir in many national and regional concerts,
among them were fundraising events for humanitarian causes and children’s rights.


To schedule auditions, contact Ms. Richeh at

Audition requirements:

  • Prepare a simple song to perform in any language
  • The conductor will play simple tunes and candidates will repeat them to decide which type of voice the candidate has (Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Bass)
  • Auditioning will be conducted privately to allow the kids to sing freely. (It is not a test, but a way to get to know each child and hear their singing)
