This performance-based course teaches the physical and musical skills necessary to be a successful choral musician. Students will learn the foundations of good vocal technique, music literacy, and the ability to analyze and interpret choral music from a wide variety of genres, styles, musical periods, and regions. As students navigate the voice changes that occur during this age, they are separated by gender into Boys’ and Girls’ choir. Students sing in 2-, 3-, and 4-part harmony learning both aurally and from written scores.
Students will have the opportunity to perform quarterly. Throughout the year, performance opportunities will include solo, chamber, and large ensemble settings through participation in concerts, festival performances, and competitions on the local and state level.
