This advanced choral class requires a proper balance of voices (SATB or SSAA). Advanced theory and musicianship will be taught through musical literature. Festivals and workshops occur several times during the year; attendance is mandatory. The choir will study and perform several major works throughout the year.
While this class is not typically a training ground for freshmen Soprano/Alto voices, Tenor/Bass voices are generally taught in this course and are more than welcome to audition.
