SEASON 2024-25, CONCERT CHOIR and A CAPPELLA 

CONCERT CHOIR AND A CAPPELLA PROGRAM OVERVIEW AND SCHEDULE

Ages 11-18

Instructor: Marianna Kosaya

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

 

Choristers are trained to perform at a professional level. They achieve excellence in musicianship, develop personal character, and gain leadership skills. Singers perfect their ability to produce a musical phrase, emphasizing vowel production and blend, learn to control and nuance tone quality, and perfect the ability to control breathing when singing complex repertoire. They develop vocal and musical skills through the rehearsal of many different styles of music: classical, world music, gospel, jazz, and improvisation.

 

MUSIC THEORY AND CLASSICAL MUSIC EDUCATION:

 

This course is designed to help the students study the basic elements of music. Topics include notation, rhythm, scales, key signatures, intervals, chords, beginning level melodic and rhythm dictation, ear-training, and sight-singing skills. The course will also include classical music appreciation and understanding, and studying composers' biographies and the historical contexts in which the music was written.

A CAPPELLA GROUP
