Select Ensemble (MS)

Assigned Faculty: Lisa Forkish
Course Description:

Middle School Select Ensemble is an audition-only intermediate vocal ensemble at OSA. It will consist of approximately 10 -20 members and will primarily perform a cappella repertoire. Students in Middle School Select Ensemble will be exposed to wide variety of three to four-part choral pieces from many geographical locations and musical genres including traditional, jazz, folk, and pop. All students will be expected to read music at an intermediate level and demonstrate strong performance skills, as well as the ability to hold their part in a four-part setting. Students in Select Ensemble will continue to hone these skills throughout the year, preparing them for Encore and/or our intermediate/advanced High School ensembles.
