TEACHERS: Get the students involved in selecting your touring repertoire! Establish guidelines for choosing repertoire (perhaps something the group has performed already or have researched). After submission, you may decide to choose some of their students' recommendations while also including some of your own selected repertoire. STUDENTS: Submit 3 repertoire choices that you think the ensemble should perform overseas. Write one paragraph per piece explaining your reasoning. SAMPLE EVALUATION TOPICS FOR STUDENTS: • Why is this piece appropriate for the venues we will be performing in (perhaps they only allow sacred music, etc)? • Why is the context of the piece fitting to perform for the country's residents? • How is the piece conducive to the ensembles abilities? • How would these three pieces fit together in a program? What is their connection to each other? Which piece would you perform first, last, etc and why? Lesson Plan 5: STANDARD: MU:Pr4.1.E.Ia Explain the criteria used to select a varied repertoire to study based on an understanding of theoretical and structural characteristics of the music, the technical skill of the individual or ensemble, and the purpose or context of the performance.
