Show Choir is an open course offered to students who qualify for show choir music, theatre and dance instruction through audition. Students must show proficiency in reading music, playing an instrument and/or singing with proper choral tone. Students must demonstrate ability to move/dance. This course is designed to increase the vocal skills and performance levels of each student by presenting a rigorous repertoire from various historical periods and cultures. Students will sing a wide range of literature such as Musical Theatre, Pop, Jazz, and Folk. From the study of these various styles, students will attain enhanced awareness of the history and events surrounding the development of choral literature. Correct stylistic performance and interpretation of the different repertoires will be emphasized. Students are required to participate in performances outside the regular school day throughout the academic year. Daily time commitment: ~30 minutes per day, 5 days per week, plus additional time for test preparation.
