The music of Motown, or the Motown sound, is a style of R&B, soul and mainstream pop appeal of the 1960s and early 1970s. The sound grew out of Detroit, Michigan where teams of songwriters and musicians produced material for girl groups, boy bands and solo singers. The Motown sound changed the vision, the texture and the style of American music. In this ensemble singers will work the band and background singers to create and explore the music, style and sound of Motown. Emphasis will placed on vocal delivery, song interpretation, stage presence, ability to lead and communicate with the band and background singers. Also there will be discussion of choreography as it was part of the Motown brand.
