Major Works Appropriate for HS Singers
Date: March 4, 2014
I'm a new vocal music faculty member at a large high school with an excellent orchestra. This year the music department is combining the forces of choir and strings with Carmina Burana (woodwinds/brass are being sourced from local college music departments). The choice of repertoire was left to the guest conductor. This collaboration looks like it will go over well with the adminstration, making it easy to get funding for similar projects, but I would like to have a list of repertoire to suggest that will be easier on my young singers' voices yet just as interesting for audiences. Vivaldi was the first composer to come to mind but other suggestions would be really helpful! What is your dream choral/orchestral collaboration project for young singers?
