Chamber Singers - 1st Period
The WJHS Chamber Singers is the advanced vocal ensemble. Membership into Concert Choir is by audition and a recommendation from the director. Students are expected to give the highest quality of performance every time the group appears. They are given higher quality of music to study and perform, and will sing music of multiple styles and genres. Their studies also include music theory, sight-singing, rhythm-reading, and ensemble assessment. Students in Concert Choir must be comfortable singing alone, for that will be part of their on-going assessment.
The Concert Choir is also a co-curricular ensemble, meaning that their grade is based upon not only in the classroom setting during the day, but also outside the school day. This ensemble will have many more opportunities to perform, and must be willing to accomodate a constantly busy schedule.
