Choir Course Information
In these choral singing classes students learn and perform a wide variety of choral literature, both sacred and secular. Included in the course objectives are learning proper techniques for singing, learning rhythm and sight-reading, and understanding a vocal musical score and the musical terminology needed to properly interpret dynamics and style. As this is a performance-based course, students will be evaluated on their participation, effort and attitude in class. Public performance of the works being rehearsed will include the winter and spring music concerts, as well as other opportunities such as participating at all-school liturgies and music festivals.
