About this title

Synopsis:

Women have had a profound impact on the choral arts. This groundbreaking volume is a celebration and affirmation of this critical role, both through history and looking into the future, written by thirteen of the most significant voices in the choral profession.Wisdom, Wit, and Will is a refreshing perspective on the choral field, rebutting conventional attitudes toward conducting and gender, and including distinctive biographies of some of the pioneering female choral conductors. But even more importantly, this book is of tremendous value to anyone seeking fresh insights into the choral conducting profession. Divided into three sections Our Music, Our Teaching, and Our Lives this book is about creating the best possible experiences for choral conducting students and choral singe rs.

Among just a few examples, Ann Howard Jones discusses Analyzing the Choral-Orchestral Score, Doreen Rao focuses on Feminine Perspectives on Conducting and Teaching Choral Music, and Hilary Apfelstadt enlightens us about Finding Balance: Professional and Personal. This book also includes concise presentations of the score preparation techniques of Robert Shaw, Margaret Hillis, Nadia Boulanger, and many others. What do women want? They want the same things men want, or should want: exciting musical performances, sensitivity to text, attention to sound learning strategies in rehearsal, solid vocal technique, knowledge of the score, and more. Wisdom, Wit, and Will is a wonderful resource for anyone who aspires to develop his or her role as a professional and artistic choral conductor and teacher.
