The Country Music Ensemble will perform the music of any and all country artists from classic to contemporary: from Patsy Cline to Carrie Underwood, from bluegrass to modern country rock. The material will be selected by the teacher based on instrumentation and student interest and capabilities. In this course, students will participate in weekly supervised rehearsals. Students will gain experience in performing, writing ensemble charts, singing harmony and background parts, working as a band, and stage performance techniques. Emphasis will be given to stylistic integrity, as well as melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic accuracy.
