High School Women's Choir - Who are altos, who are sopranos
Date: December 5, 2012
I am midway through the first year where I've had an all women's high school choir. It is an entry level choir class, so most of my singers are high school freshmen, with a few older high schoolers in the class who just signed up. It is non-auditioned, but most of the freshmen have had experience singing in middle-school choir. I made a critical error at the beginning of the year by not properly "voicing" this choir. I took them at their word as to whether they were altos or sopranos. Therefore I have some singers who are singing soprano that should be singing alto and vice versa. We just completed our seasonal concert and are ending our first semester. I would like to now correct my early error and put these young ladies in the appropriate voice part.
What is the best method for doing this and what are the range/tessitura differences for Sopranos and Altos and within those, S1, S2, A1 and A2?
