Expedition: Solo & Ensemble

Description of the Project: Students elect to learn a classical song. The song is performed in front of a judge and they are scored using a rubric. If they score high enough, they may advance to the state level competition. Solo & Ensemble requires time out of school spent learning and rehearsing. The “A” category songs are ranked to have the highest difficulty, with students having to sing in different languages and perform pieces that are rhythmically and
tonally challenging. These students chose to perform a challenging “Madrigal” piece in the French language. A madrigal is a secular vocal music composition of the Renaissance and early Baroque eras. Traditionally, polyphonic madrigals are unaccompanied; the number of voices varies from two to

Audience this project was shared with: Students performed in front of a judge and a small audience of students, teachers and parents. This group advanced to the state level competition and will perform again in May.
