their personal musicality.

Make Connections – Who’s on Your Reading List? The choirs perform music from medieval times to the
gift. Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of all types of music and their importance.
Dr. Joshua Brown, Director of Choral Activities, Ouachita Baptist University
Elements of Music – Choirs strive to achieve unity of sound. Singers use rhythm, melody, harmony, shape, timbre,
tone, expression and intonation. But what does that mean?
Nathan Benavides, Director, CCC Variations and Erin Baker, Director, Coppell Children’s Chorus
Follow the Director – Singing in a choir is all about teamwork. Being part of a choir helps you consider
how the individual contributes to shaping the whole. Develop your choral confidence with group performance skills.
