This audition-based ensemble is open to students currently enrolled in Concert Choir who have had a minimum of a year of training and performance with a choral group. The students meet during evenings (with some special sectionals/rehearsals during lunch). It is a performance-oriented course, emphasizing vocal production, music reading skills, rehearsals and performance of advanced level repertoire appropriate to chamber singing. From madrigals to music of the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern, and Contemporary periods the repertoire represents cultures from around the world. The students are expected to memorize music independently and to perform extensively.
Auditions are held during the first week of school. This is a UC approved class.
