The Music of Take 6, Sweet Honey in the Rock, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo
The Take 6, Sweet Honey in the Rock, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo ensemble will transcribe, analyze, and perform the music of these seminal choral groups. In this course, students will participate in weekly supervised rehearsals. Students will gain experience in performing learning some of the repertoire of contemporary gospel music during the '80s. Emphasis will be given to stylistic integrity, as well as melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic accuracy.
