This advanced class is a wonderful opportunity for the serious vocalist! This multi-session class will further your vocal skills and abilities by being challenged with more difficult sight singing exercises, technique training, and musical comprehension. Students will be expected to be able to hold their own parts and properly blend when singing in duets, trios, and small groups. More challenging pieces will be used and performed in this class.
SECOND SESSION: Project classes are a two-session commitment. Students who participated in the first session will continue into this second session.
