Singers Branching out: How to Choose Repertoire that Will Help Your Chorus Students Fly to New Heights
Poliniak, Susan
Teaching Music, v16 n4 p32 Jan 2009
Choosing appropriate music for a school choir can be a daunting task. So much needs to be taken into account--the dictates of the curriculum, the pedagogical goals, the cultural and religious contexts of the students and the community. Juggling all of these needs and influences is crucial to creating a successful, lively performance program, not to mention a worthwhile, enjoyable, and educationally rewarding choir experience for the students. Choral programs at different grade levels share some common ground with the issues that must be taken into account during music selection. In this article, the author presents a few considerations that teachers will encounter, no matter what age-group the choir may be.
