In these unprecedented times, the Joint Music Program classes will be online only in Fall 2020. There will be one choir offering – MUS 173P Claremont Concert Choir-Pandemic Version. An audition will not be required for Fall 2020 semester. Just submit the PERM request and the director will grant it.
Fall 2020 the Claremont Concert Choir-Pandemic Version will be an online experience exploring choral repertoire and individual choral singing skills. The study of repertoire will be from the renaissance to the present through listening to works, learning about history and repertoire structure, and singing excerpts. The skills portion will include vocal and sight singing work. We will plan to create a “virtual choir” performance of a piece or two during the semester. The class will meet synchronously on Zoom at least once per week (MW 6:00-7:15 pm Pacific time), with asynchronous individual work as well. The course is still 0.5 CR (1 CR at HMC).
Participants in this class who have never successfully auditioned for the Joint Music Program choirs before will need to have an audition when the choral program returns to an in-person model.
