the name's kat, i'll be attending fsu in the fall as a theatre studies major. it's been my dream to go into musical theatre, but since i doubt i have enough time to develop the talent fsu's department is looking for in the time i have, i've decided to just nurture what musical talent i do have. during the fall i'll be in the coral union, and i was just wondering if anyone could tell me anything about it, like how intense or not it actually is, what the professor's like, how much i should be expected to practice/commit, how often i'll be expected to perform outside of class, etc.

thanks in advance

Choral union is one of the easiest, if not the easiest choir FSU has. It's not intense at all and there is not actual professor. Graduate choral conducting majors teach the class and Dr. Fenton observes. You have one performance outside of class. I would suggest possibly auditioning for University Singers at the beginning of the year. I'm personally not a choral person (I'm doing as much opera chorus as possible to keep me out of regular chorus) but, if I were... I would go for USingers. It's more of a time commitment and the calibur of singing is much higher since it is auditioned and not open to anyone like choral union is.

that would be awesome, but the thing is, i have little to no choral/formal singing experience at all. the only experience that's close to mentionable are a few basic music theatre classes and actual performance experience in three amateur musicals. two of them were of a somewhat professional calibur, but the bottom line is that i've never *really* been trained or anything, and i don't know what kind of talent they'd be looking for. i also need to concentrate on my major, which means that choral union will probably be a good place to keep singing, but also not feel worried about any commitments to activities outside of my major

thanks for the info, though, it really helps :) maybe when i learn a little more about my schedule i'll be able to check out some different musical opportunities
