In choral music and singing, the chosen repertoire will affect every aspect of teaching and student learning. In these sessions, participants will work through the process of considering, searching, selecting, and using repertoire to help them achieve their curricular goals for the year. The session will cover the philosophy behind repertoire selection, where to find quality repertoire, as well as single and multi-year planning. The ways programming choices impact the wider community beyond the classroom will also be discussed.
