Share Five from YOUR Folder

It’s time for YOU to share your programming through the “Five from the Folder” column on ChoralBuzz.
 
Each week we feature a brief list of FIVE selections that conductors find particularly useful to their choirs.  Combining the clarity of someone presently rehearsing a work with the concise length of a text, the column has been popular with conductors of all levels.
 
“Five from the Folder” is NOT about new music . . . it is about the music you find valuable.  Share your choir’s repertoire through “Five from the Folder.”  Contact Scott Dorsey at dorsey@acda.org.
