If your answer is YES to the following questions, then the vocal ensemble studio is for you!

 Do you love to sing?
 Can you carry a tune?
 Are you able to move to the beat of the music?
 Do you have dramatic expression?
 Do you love bringing joy to others through the performing arts?

Students will be exposed to a wide variety of musical styles and genres in vocal ensemble. We will focus on fundamentals of vocal production, singing in an ensem-ble and reading music. Members selected for the ad-vanced group will already have experience reading mu-sic, have a strong foundation in choral techniques and will be exposed to literature with multiple parts. In addi-tion to singing, some compositions will lend itself to great choreography. Most importantly, students will learn how to work as a team and develop self-confidence as they work towards a common goal.

Not only will our performances be enjoyed by MMS families, but we will share our love of music and the performing arts throughout Gainesville in several community service events.
