High School Choral Structure Proposal
Date: November 29, 2013
I am currently teaching in a high school program with 4 curricular choirs
freshman choir of 32 girls and 3 guys
non-auditioned concert choir with 33 girls and 4 guys
advanced women's ensemble of 25 girls
advanced mixed ensemble with 25 girls 8 basses and 4 tenors.
I am writing a proposal to change the structure to:
9-12 non-auditioned beginning men's
9-12 non-auditioned beginning treble
advanced (auditioned) women's
advanced (auditioned) mixed
The girls in our freshman and non auditioned mixed are limited by these few guys in terms of repertoire, and skill. These guys need some more one-on-one attention... This proposal I'm writing seems to be the best bet for us, for now for many reasons.
I need hard evidence of a choir program made up like this that is successful. If you have data of a choral program of this structure working, please send it my way--I am most appreciative! My proposal can't exist without evidence.
Thank you in advance!
