Varsity Girls' Choir - Course Syllabus
Stephanie Hamilton, Director
The Varsity Girls' Choir provides the means of maintaining a solid foundation in performance skills. As an auditioned group, these more advanced vocal students will showcase vocal skills through ensemble and solo performances. The students will be given opportunities within the district and the community to perform the selected pieces and showcase skills learned through the semester. This choir will compete in various UIL events during the school year. Through this course of study, the students will learn new pieces with ease, sing in tune, anticipate patterns in music, work as a close-knit ensemble, and become independent singers.
