Contemporary Vocal Ensemble Teen - NEW!

Students will set the course and bring their own individual style to the selection of the music for the Contemporary Vocal Ensemble. The faculty coach will guide the group in learning and performing their favorite music styles - pop, rock, musical theater, jazz, R&B. Each student will have the chance to sing lead and background vocals, in solos, duets, and ensemble songs. In addition to the teacher providing accompaniments for the songs, students who play piano, guitar, or ukulele can also play for the group. Each 10-week session will be unique, so students can choose 1, 2, or all 3 sessions. A performance is planned at the conclusion of each session.
