Vocal Placement in the Choir
Date: November 30, 2010
My name is Rodger Guerrero, and I have been a high school choral conductor in California or 25 years. I have also recently returned to the Univ. of Southern California doctoral choral program (part-time).
In one of my current courses I am responsible for generating topics for two Roundtable-like discussions. One topic concerns decisions choral conductors should make about placing voices in choral ensembles as well as positioning said ensembles in mixed, sectional, or other formations. I have plenty of literature, and Choral School and Performance Practice documentation in which to frame the discussion. However, I thought it might be cool to include your reflections and general practices on these two issues. My plan is to have USC Choral Seminar class members log on to the Choral Net site (this Friday morning, Dec. 3), read your comments, and discuss your ideas.
Will you please help me with this communicative, interactive endeavor? If you would like to contact me with questions or comments in private, you may reach me at: rguerrero(a)hw.com.
Thank You So Much,
