Description

Singing together offers one of the most powerful human experiences, especially when combined with a deep emotional connection to a particular event or setting. Written choral music comprises one of the oldest and largest repertoires of music in the world, and this course will explore vocal offerings by composers across the span of the past 800 years. Repertoire studied will include traditional composers ranging from Byrd, Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and Britten, to modern-day interpretations of choral music offered by Moses Hogan, Caroline Shaw and Roomful of Teeth. Students will listen to, write about, and sing music together, and experience communal vocal music in myriad ways.
