This course provides students with opportunities to develop musicianship and specific performance skills through ensemble and solo singing. Activities include creating the development of quality repertoire in the diverse styles of choral literature that is appropriate in difficulty and range for the students. This includes music performed at a Catholic Mass. Intermediate Chorus provides instruction in creating, performing, listening to and analyzing work, and critiquing in our own recorded music, in addition to focusing on the specific subject matter. Students develop the ability to produce, arrange, write, and record a song of the class’s choosing. They will understand and convey the composer’s intent in order to connect the performer to the audience. A limited number of public performances will serve as a culmination of daily rehearsal and music goals. Students are required to participate in performance opportunities outside of the school day that support and extend learning in the classroom.
