The Concert Choir is an advanced mixed choral ensemble for the dedicated and serious
musician, grades 10-12. This class meets fourth. hour. The Director auditions singers in February of the previous school year. It is a two-semester course in which students may earn one unit of fine Arts credit. Concert Choir provides opportunities for the further development of a mature singing voice and sight singing independence. Students perform a variety of choral compositions of contrasting periods and styles: major works and double choir works are included. Students continue to expand their musical knowledge through the study of harmony, melodic and harmonic dictation, and music history. Guest performers and clinicians are occasionally utilized in the rehearsal setting. Expectations include a sincere desire to improve understanding and technique. Some out of school rehearsal and activities occur though out the year. Students are required to attend all performances.
The members of this choir will be issued a Concert Choir robe and stole. Students are responsible for the care of these very expensive robes. Stoles will be issued and returned at each concert. The robes may only be dry-cleaned. A $15.00 rental fee is due at the beginning of the school year. Checks are preferred and should be made payable to LSHS. Women of the choir are to wear black dress pants and black hose and black close-toed shoes under the robe. Men should wear a white, long-sleeved dress shirt, black dress
slacks, black dress socks and black dress shoes. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!!!!
