Upper Middle/Secondary

In choral music and singing, the repertoire chosen for the year is the textbook, and it impacts every aspect of teaching and student learning. During Arts Academy sessions in 2020, repertoire was explored: including how to find it, how to use it, and new ways of thinking about it. For these sessions, participants will explore the ways in which obligations for finding quality repertoire have expanded, and how to meet those new expectations. There will also be discussion about the ways that choral performances are evolving into conceptual events, including ideas for multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary connections. The group will also explore (and commiserate about) where a multi-year pandemic has left music education, and discuss the path forward.
