MUS 0161 - Madrigal Singers


Fall, Spring 1 Credit Hour
Madrigal Singers provides the singer, and the aspiring choral conductor, the opportunity to experience the type of music known as the Renaissance Madrigal, specifically, and/or music from a variety of periods that reflect the part-writing, spirited texts, and performance practice most closely associated with the popular music genre originating in the 16th century. The emphasis of this ensemble is twofold: 1) To give the singer the necessary foundation in small ensemble choral singing, insofar as the performance practice of this type of music, and 2) to provide the upperclassman choral conductor the tangible opportunity to plan, rehearse, and conduct an organized choral ensemble, in a lab-like format, which might serve as a useful experience in preparation for future teaching and conducting. Attention to high performance standards and rigorous rehearsals is the cornerstone of this ensemble. Audition only, concurrent enrollment in Concert Chorale MUS 0121  . Course Charge: $10.00 Music Equip Maintenance Chg
