ART2091A/ART2091B Show Choir A

0.5 credit per semester

Students will create, perform, and respond to music in a variety of styles/genres. Students will refine proper vocal technique and choral singing in relation to posture, breath control, tone, intonation, diction, blending, singing in harmony, music literacy, and sight-singing in multiple keys and parts. Students will sing primarily state-level 5-6 music, often without accompaniment. This choir is a highly demanding ensemble, generally between 16-24 students, requiring an advanced level of vocal independence. This ensemble has a very active performance schedule, which may include multiple concerts, school performances, and festivals, and students are expected to participate in all performances. An audition and/or a prerequisite of HS Chorus 1, 2, and/or 3 may be required to participate. This course satisfies the fine arts graduation requirement and may be repeated unlimited times for credit.
