Vocal Ensembles

Junior Varsity Singers

This is a year-long course offered to developing high school treble students in a choral experience. The main goal of this group is to prepare each piece we perform exceptionally well – emphasizing accurate pitches, diction, phrasing, musicality, balance, blend, vocal production, and correct period practices. To achieve this, students are expected to know their parts completely. Initial rehearsals will focus on part learning, while subsequent repetitions will address the other musical aspects listed above. Student learning will also focus on how to develop and improve independent musical study and practice techniques outside of class. Students are required to participate in all major performances as a significant part of their grade.
