METHODS OF EVALUATION:
Each ensemble will rehearse a minimum
of 120 minutes per week. The members will need to memorize all music (at
least five numbers per semester) and participate in at least three performances.
Additionally, each member will be expected to contribute ideas for the
success of the group. Grades will be based on attendance and attitude
(80%) and vocal quartets in class (20%). Unexcused absences and tardies
will lower grade. Attendance at major performances is required and will
be evaluated as an exam.
Students with impaired sensory, manual
or speaking skills are encouraged and have the responsibility to contact
their instructor, in a timely fashion, regarding reasonable accommodation
