THE AREAS COVERED IN THE PROGRAM ARE (1) CHORAL ORGANIZATIONS, (2) RELATED CURRICULUM OFFERINGS, (3) TYPES OF CONCERTS BY AND FOR THE CHORAL CLASSES, (4) CHORAL MATERIALS, AND (5) THE FESTIVAL PROGRAM, (6) COMMUNITY SERVICES, (7) CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, AND (8) A DESCRIPTION OF AREAS FOR FURTHER STUDY.
