MUSIC 103 Concert Choir (1 per semester/maximum of 8)
(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.
The Concert Choir is the premier mixed choir at the University. The repertoire of the 14-voiced ensemble is selected from a wide range of choral literature from medieval commissioned twenty-first century choral works. The choir has performed numerous major works with orchestra and tours yearly. Recent tours have included performances in New Orleans, LA and Toronto, Canada. The choir has performed at prestigious regional and national music conferences. Membership is open to 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.
