Course Description

MUS 230
Vocal Jazz Improvisation Ensemble
Fall and Spring

The ability to sing in tune is required; an adventurous spirit is suggested. This class explores the boundaries of vocal ensemble through an array of improvisational exercises and lesser-known, yet expanded, jazz choral arrangements. Voice technique; ensemble blend and balance; and jazz rhythms, song forms, and scat singing are also integral to this work which often yields greater personal and creative freedom. Informal group audition at the first rehearsal. Culminates in a "salon" performance.
