In this course singers will explore more sophisticated technical issues while continuing to work on the fundamental aspects of good singing: posture, breath control, and expressive articulation. Continue to build musicianship skills such as note reading, rhythm, phrasing, harmony and dynamics and will focus more on developing the skills necessary to perform as a soloist. Emphasis will be placed on the practical application of exercises and songs of various styles in both group and solo settings. Topics to be covered include sight-reading, basic harmonizing, how to practice, and song and performance analysis. Participants will work on solos, duets and small ensemble pieces, and will prepare a selection of these for the final concert.

Note: Prerequisite: familiarity with fundamentals of singing as taught in Singing I, or equivalent experience.
