Choir Selections

These are preferred pieces, most of which I have conducted with my ensembles. Where links are provided, click to read my in depth analysis of the piece. I usually do not publish these until after I have gone through the entire process of preparing and performing the repertoire so that I can include the discoveries my students and I make throughout the process and what we have learned from evaluating our performances.
