Alternate Season Extension Choirs
Movie Music Choir
Singers in the Broadway Choir will learn the vocal techniques of this American standard style of music. This choir provides singers the opportunity to sing some of their favorite Broadway songs while learning how to appropriately vocalize through practice and performance opportunities in this valuable genre of music. Solo performance opportunities in this style may arise.
Through the study of music on a global scale singers in this choir will learn about different vocal techniques throughout the world. The exposure to different world cultures and their native dialect provide singers the exposure, practice and technique to produce sounds that do not usually accompany the English language. Due to the heavy use of instruments in some of the cultures studied, instrument playing by singers in the choir may be expected from time to time.
Singers and Standards Choir
This choir focuses on traditional vocal jazz standards and their accompanying techniques. Frank Sinatra & Ella Fitzgerald music will be studied.
