Chorale is open to all students interested in developing their individual vocal and choral skills. Emphasis is placed on proper breathing, tone production, diction, musicality and music reading proficiency. A variety of suitable literature, ranging from Renaissance to contemporary, will be studied and performed in concert. The performance nature of this course requires attendance after school for scheduled rehearsals and concerts. Chorale rehearses monthly after school and more frequently prior to concerts. Participation in these rehearsals, as well as all scheduled performances, is a requirement. All freshmen girls and girls new to the choir program who intend to participate in Symphonic Choir must take one year of Chorale (Boys are placed in Symphonic Choir regardless of matriculation). Students may remain in Chorale for all four years of high school or may advance into Symphonic Choir by auditioning towards the end of the year.
There will be an opportunity provided for those students demonstrating high skill levels to pursue a more rigorous curriculum, which will entail performance of the highest levels of high school music literature.
