MUSIC 089 University Choir (1 per semester/maximum of 8)
(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.
The University Choir is the largest mixed-voiced ensemble on the University Park campus. The choir participates in two campus performances per semester and has toured Europe, Canada, and the eastern region of the United States. Membership is determined by audition and is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. The goal of the ensemble is to provide artistic, meaningful, and successful choral performances. To achieve this goal, the learning objectives for individual students include attention toward individual vocal development, increased musicianship skill, and the discovery of new means of artistic expression. In addition to these individual objectives, the conductor of the ensemble also teaches directly toward the objectives of ensemble tone, blend, balance, intonation, dynamics, diction, phrasing, etc. Grades are determined by a combination of vocal and musicianship assessments (both written and aural) and attendance at rehearsals and performances.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
