The 12 Days Before Christmas

by Wendy Moy


It is easy to say that the product (or performance) of a group should be excellent in order for success to be achieved, but the wise judge will take into account the process (holistic development of the singers and audience) as well. Excellence is such a hot topic, but what aspects of excellence are truly essential? We will expound on our belief that excellence ...breeds a sustainable program and, in turn, more excellence. What are ways in which dynamicism in collaboration can foster excellence in ways not possible individually? How can innovation be used as a stepping stone toward excellence? In the month of December, Chorosynthesis will “rock the choral world” by redefining excellence and by making a call for specific actions toward strengthening the American culture through its choral music.
