What audiences see and hear when they attend a choir program is a small spring arising from subterranean waters. Those subterranean waters are the choral rehearsal; it is in the rehearsal that the musical and spiritual aspects of the program are formed. Rehearsal Techniques will explore how to reach spiritual and musical goals. Students will work with both text study and conducting an effective music rehearsal, and will be given opportunity to hone their skills in class.
Prerequisite: a working knowledge of basic conducting patterns. Students should be current or former choir directors.
