Requiring Enrollment in Chorus to Participate in Vocal Jazz Ensemble
Date: September 20, 2013
I teach at a small private school. I have one co-curricular high school chorus that is non-auditioned and is comprised of 40 9th through 12th graders. Our curriculum also offers two contemporary ensembles that meet before school three days a week. Currently we require that students have to be in a co-curricular large ensemble before they can participate in the morning classes. My administration would like to revisit that requirement. I have many students in choir that don't elect to be in those morning classes, so it wouldn't affect my program all that much (at this time), but I am not sure I want to go down that slipperly slope. Any ideas both for and against this proposed change are appreciated. I want to be armed with as many opinions from other choral professionals, as I am the only one on our staff.
Once again thank you for your valued opinions.
