This project report presents a set of criteria for choosing a balanced program of repertoire for choirs, specifically focusing on increasing the representation of female composers in programming for middle and high school choirs. The recital given in conjunction with this report represents these criteria in action.
In addition to providing a biography of each composer and analyzing the text and musical structure of each song, the author includes her rationale for choosing each piece based on the criteria, as well as teaching strategies and conducting techniques employed. The project report also includes an appendix with an annotated bibliography to provide an updated resource for conductors at the middle and high school level who want to be deliberate in programming a more diverse representation of composers.
