Contemporary Vocal Ensembles are designed to develop students’ performance skills and knowledge about singing contemporary styles in a group setting. As the groups prepare for performances throughout the school year, special emphasis is placed on ensemble skills (blend, balance, intonation), style, stage presence, music reading skills, ear training, and an introduction to improvisation. Groups are formed each Fall through an audition process.
