Vocal Chamber Ensemble

Coordinator: Annamaria Popescu

This ensemble is offered by audition to voice majors and pianists.

VoCE is a small ensemble where students will perform vocal duets, trios, quartets etc., written after 1800. The repertoire will be limited to song repertoire. We will not be performing operatic or sacred literature.

This 1-credit course was created to teach students the necessary skills required to sing in a small ensemble while maintaining their individual quality of soloist.  Singers and pianists, under the guidance of the instructor, will work on vocal and poetic awareness in an ensemble situation through discussion and then performance.

Students will be grouped together by the instructor, and the repertoire choices  will be made with approval of the singers’ voice instructor. Singers will be expected to perform circa 20 minutes of music from memory.
