Fountain Valley School of Colorado's Concert Choir has been entertaining the FVS community for decades. Two vocal and instrumental concerts are held each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Moreover, the choir is central to the annual Winter Celebration event and often performs at All-Schools throughout the year. Vocal music faculty Kate Johnson also prepares students to audition for Colorado All-State choir.
The focus of this major course is the enjoyment of choral singing with an emphasis on vocal technique, style interpretation and sight-reading. Students rehearse and perform music from all seven musical eras, focusing on performance practice and music theory. Advanced vocal technique is introduced as well as the opportunity for smaller ensemble singing. The overall emphasis is on improved singing qualities and advancement of skills for the individual in the ensemble setting. Public performance is required.
