Advanced Choir is an ensemble designed to give experienced choral singers the opportunity to improve their skills while working on challenging choral literature in a broad range of styles including pop and jazz. To be eligible for this ensemble, singers must have been a member of the Chorus, or a similar ensemble, for at least a year, or demonstrate their abilities in an audition. Over the course of the year, students will be introduced to basic music theory, ear training, and sight singing, and they will concentrate heavily on technique-oriented singing. Students in this ensemble will have the opportunity to audition for several honor choirs, which serve to broaden the horizons of their musical experiences. Each year, approximately 20 Stevenson singers are accepted into state and regional honor choirs. In addition to class periods, the commitment for this course includes concerts in the winter and spring. The dates of the concerts will be shared with students during the first week of class.
