From 2023 National Conference
This repertoire-focused session will provide historical, theoretical, and performance practice guidance for 5 to 6 titles from the Community Choirs Virtual Reading Session. We will discuss the most efficient ways to introduce and teach each selection, identify likely “trouble” spots, and share strategic tools to address those moments efficiently and effectively. The session will also include a handout with a substantive guide to each of the “Deep Dive” octavos to keep with your scores for future reference. This will include IPA for foreign language pieces, composer biographies, a rehearsal guide, and where possible, composer comments about their repertoire.
