Following are your repertoire assignments for the spring semester. Please listen to them ASAP and let me know if something doesn't appeal to you! I'm always happy to find other options for you, but I will not be near my library after Friday of this week.
Please get the music to your piece(s) over break: preferably buy the book so you have a collection you are building. You should own the music you sing, rather than simply a bunch of photocopies, which are illegal anyway. Send a PDF to Dr. Steele so that he is ready to go that first week as well.
Remember also to get me your schedules NO LATER THAN January 3, as I will be at a workshop right up until the night before classes.
As always, I am only an email or text or phone call away. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am happy to help!
Happy break, take care of yourselves, and enjoy some well-earned relaxation.
