Vocal Performance 4

Spring 2020

Taught By: La Tanya Hall

Section: A

CRN: 1689

Credits: 2

This course investigates the story in a song and how to stage that story effectively. It is designed to aid the vocalist in becoming a public performer capable of engaging an audience in a personal interpretation of the meaning of a song. There are four primary foci: personalization of the lyric through the creation of background story, character, sense memory and environment; development of lyric interpretive melody singing including the purposeful use of melodic variations; development of ease and flexibility in the vocal production; staging and performance using all these skills in a public forum. This course is part of the required vocal curriculum, depending on evaluation placement.
