Small Vocal Ensemble
In the Small Vocal Ensembles Class, intermediate and advanced voice students are given an overview of available vocal ensemble literature and its historical context, then are assigned one or two pieces to be performed late in the quarter. During Fall quarter, the main concentration is opera; winter, “legit” music theater and operetta; spring, ensemble song literature by classical composers. More advanced students may choose to concentrate on one or two mediums throughout the year. Directed by Dr. Charles Enlow.
