Concert Reports- One will be due by the end of each quarter, and the other due before each final. You must attend a choir concert outside of the choirs you are in, and write a 2- page report on the concert. You must turn in a program and/or ticket. Be sure to write about musical ideas and comments. A report that consists of, "I didn’t like this piece because the girls dresses are ugly" will not count for a report. Refrain from using any adjective or adverb more than twice in a report. You must turn in a program and/or ticket with your report. There are rubrics and a concert report formula available in the choir room.
Music Report-One music report will be due before winter break. You must attend a music concert of the Rolling Meadows High School Band or Orchestra. Write a 1-page report on the concert with the same criteria for the Concert Reports. You must turn in a program and/or ticket.
Theory Worksheets- Every two weeks, you will have theory worksheets they must turn in to receive full credit. If you do not score 70% or higher, you must redo the worksheet and turn it in for the following week. If you do not read directions, the assignment will be returned to you with no score, and no credit until it is turned in again with all directions being followed. The next week will still have a due date for the next assignment. *This MUST be written in PENCIL! Any assignments turned in with pen will also be returned with no credit.
Concert Reflections- The day of class after each concert, there will be time for everyone to write down their thoughts on the performance. They will include their personal performance, their groups’ performance, and the other groups’ performances.
There will be final exams for this class. The other tests will be singing tests, and possibly vocabulary quizzes. In order to be a successful choir, the members must know their notes and words. These dates may be given in advance, but there is the possibility of the singing tests being POP quizzes. If you cheat, or talk during a test, you will have your test taken, and you will receive a zero. No exceptions.
