The 7th & 8th Grade Tenor/Bass Choir with be co-directed for the first time this year by Mr. Erich Wangeman and Mr. Dee. Mr. Wangeman directs 4 choirs at TC West Senior HS. The TB Choir has nearly 60 students this year. 7th & 8th Grade TB Choir students meet every day for class during 6th period. Their performance schedule usually includes fall and spring concerts as well as a festival performance in February. This year we will be bringing in clinicians rather than attending festival. This provides more contact time with master teachers than students receive in the festival setting.
Students focus on mastering the fundamentals of music literacy and vocal production emphasizing excellent tone quality while deepening their understanding and application of many other musical elements. They sing a wide variety of choral music genres including songs in foreign languages and English with some opportunities for popular styles too. Most songs are in two or three part harmony. More details about the learning goals and scales for choir can be viewed on the How to SING! page.
