Choral Pedagogy and the Older Singer

This book should help conductors adjust expectations and methods to suit the condition and abilities of older singers. Maintaining one’s vocal skill in later years is the goal, since getting better may not be possible. Knowing that every choral conductor hopes a choir will improve from season to season, a new paradigm for the aging choir must be established. Once involved, the conductor of older singers is certain to reap the benefits of making music with people whose appreciation of the text, the music and the act of singing is deeper than in any younger ensemble.
