ACHF Arts Education
Participants perform music literacy and artistic goals commensurate with their level of experience. Initial assessment skills are conducted with all participants through high school prior to the concert season, and reassessed the following spring. 2: Participants expand their knowledge and performance competence of world music. Through commissioned work and arrangements the NYC groups will expand their knowledge of non-native languages and styles of performance. Guest artists and musicians will be brought in for instruction.
Directors selected appropriate pieces based on the composition of the choirs and choirs successfully performed pieces with artistry and competence. Feedback from choral professionals aided in evaluations of the participants' achievements. The ability of the singers to consistently and successfully progress through the program is a strong indicator of their development. 2: Each performing choirs, from first grade through adults, studied and performed non-English language repertoire from around the globe. Directors were able to evaluate the singers through rehearsal and performance of the pieces. A guest musician fluent in Greek instructed one of the choirs in pronunciation and performance of a traditional Greek piece.
