Reply To: Contemporary music in the chorus classroom
I think that contemporary music has its place in our choirs. Having said that, I need to reiterate that it should not have a prominent place. Our job is to educate the students about all styles of music. I wouldn’t do an entire year with only music from the Baroque Period. Therefore, I wouldn’t do music solely from the 21st century. But, I also think we shouldn’t exclude it for the afore mentioned reason.
