Welcome to 90s HITS! This session, students will focus on popular music from the 1990s.  Additionally, students will create a professionally recorded and filmed music video of the song MMMBop by Hanson!  Each week, students will work on proper vocal technique and practice harmonization in a variety of musical numbers. Large group and small ensembles will be cast based on age/ability. Students will all receive solos within group/ensemble numbers. Select students may also receive individual solos and/or duets. Students in grades 4th-12th should prepare an audition video of any song showing their vocal abilities and stage presence to be submitted no later than December 1st. K-3rd grade students should expect to sing Happy Birthday a cappella and/or do some individual vocal warm ups with the instructor on the first day of class. All students will participate in a final concert at the end of the session for family and friends!
