The 7th & 8th Grade Tenor/Bass Choir with be co-directed by Mr. Erich Wangeman and Mr. Dee. Mr. Wangeman directs 4 choirs at TC West Senior HS. The TB Choir has about 40 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. We will also be bringing in clinicians. This provides more contact time with master teachers than students receive in the festival setting. 8th Grade 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 three or four part harmony. More information about the choir curriculum can be found on the Vocal Music learning goals and scales page.
