AVM Apprentice Singer Program

The Assabet Valley Mastersingers Apprentice Singer Program offers an extension of a
high school student’s choral experience. The Program offers talented and motivated
choral students the opportunity to prepare and perform classic masterworks in concert
with mature vocalists, professional soloists and instrumentalists within our community.
The AVM Concert season programming is available here.

The AVM Apprentice Singer Program has drawn high school vocalists from
Northborough, Southborough, Marlborough and Boylston. Many singers join us as
juniors and continue with us during their senior year. Several Apprentice Singers have
gone on to study music but many pursue studies in other academic disciplines. The
exposure to vocalists of all ages fosters a life long pursuit of choral music.

Dr. Robert Eaton, AVM founder and Artistic Director, has been a longtime educator,
adjudicator and award-winning conductor of high school choirs. His support of quality
programming and creation of opportunities for choral students regardless of financial
resources is well acknowledged.

The AVM vocalist community is a welcoming, multi-generational ensemble that is
congenial and collaborative. AVM vocalists appreciate the mission, the Artistic Director,
the music and friendly nature of the organization. In a recent vocalist survey, 88% of
AVM vocalists stated they are “Very satisfied” with their AVM experience and that in
general the music literature challenges them to grow musically.

The AVM Apprentice Singer Program assigns no dues and music is provided at no cost
to the Apprentice Singer. If you are interested in the Apprentice Singer Program please
