The core parts of our choral curriculum like vocal technique, music literacy, and ensemble skills, we'll spend a good chunk of the year in a unit on the different careers in the choral world. In this unit we'll learn about the lives of professional singers, composers, conductors & teachers, audio & video producers, managers & administrators, and more!
We'll continue learning more advanced aspects of music-reading, vocal technique, and we'll also have a mock-audition project to help us prepare for different audition scenarios. I'm working on getting a special tool approved that'll hopefully make rehearsals a bit more manageable for us, too.
Did someone say they wanted to do ICHSA? Well here we come! I'm so excited at the opportunities we have to continue building our musical family and making music together.
More info to come. See you soon!
We'd also like to give a huge thank you to...
