Oldies: Sam Cooke, Tina Turner, and Otis Redding
The Oldies: Sam Cooke, Tina Turner, and Otis Redding ensemble will rehearse and perform the music of the '50s, '60s, and early '70s. The primary style of this ensemble is Motown. The ensemble will play charts by teacher. Student generated material and new arrangements may be added each semester depending on the vocalists taking the ensemble. In this course, students will participate in weekly supervised rehearsals. Students will gain experience in performing at the end of the semester. Emphasis will be given to stylistic integrity, as well as melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic accuracy.
