R&S TWO-YEAR COLLEGE CHOIRS
Welcome to the Two-Year College R & S Page!
I would like to extend an invitation to all of you to utilize this page as a resource as you consider your programming for concerts and performances throughout the year. I believe that the Two-Year College experience is a wonderful transition for students who want a quality educational experience, who might not be ready for the pressure and rigor of a four-year collegiate mentality. I hope to be able to offer suggestions and recommendations that accommodate the transitional feel that a Two-Year College choral experience can provide. With that said, some of the literature might present challenges, others might be a carrot to dangle in front of your singers. I think it is important to have a wide variety of styles, languages, and time periods represented - that will be my focus as I begin the process of filtering through literature.
If any of you have questions, comments, suggestions or concerns along the way, don't hesitate to contact me! Many heads are better than one!
Have a wonderful school year of singing!
