BELLE ENSEMBLE - sub non-varsity
While Belle Ensemble competes as a non-varsity choir, these women have a wide variety of music backgrounds and are a mixture of all four grades (9-12). During the first semester, each class learns its own music and one or two combined pieces for the large ensemble. Vocal technique and sightreading are the primary focus for the fall. In the spring, the two classes (Voci and Ensemble) combine to form the UIL sub non-varsity choir, performing more challenging literature in preparation for many of the students advancing to the non-varsity and varsity choirs. Although the class is open to all women who are interested in choir, each student is evaluated in the fall on the following criteria: ability, vocal promise, and attitude.
