Vocal Specific Classes:

 

This year we have merged our vocal groups into vocal blocks. Students studying Voice 1 - 4 are in one block and those studying Voice 5 - 6 and those who are seniors are in the other block. This was done to make sure we could offer access to vocal support on a personal level to all vocal students during this time

 

Voice 1 Through 6 – Vocal majors must take a minimum of 6 semesters of Voice Class. Voice classes are devoted to building technique, repertoire and musicianship. In addition to vocal technique and repertoire, students develop interpretation skills, familiarity with the International Phonetic Alphabet, and audition preparation skills.

  • Voice 1: Italian Art Song​

  • Voice 2: German Art Song

  • Voice 3: French Art Song

  • Voice 4: English Art Song

  • Voice 5: Opera/Oratorio

  • Voice 6: Musical Theater

Solo Voice/Audition Prep – Solo Voice/Audition Prep is for the enhancement and clarification of expectations for a soloist in a professional choral rehearsal/performance setting. The development of overall tonal concepts, with emphasis on solo singing and proper vocal production, is stressed. Students improve sight singing skills through continued reading of vocal repertoire. Admission to solo voice is by audition.
