Choralaires experiences hortage of male voices Choralaires, traditionally a mixed voice vocal group, faced an unusual situation during the fall semester. Gary Mabry, in- structor of music and director of the chorus, said it became necessary for Choralaires to become an all-female chorus at the beginning of the year. With the expansion of A Cappella to more than 50 members in the fall semester, more positions became available in both Concert Chorale and Choralaires. In order to balance the remaining two choirs with proper voice parts, it was necessary to shift all unassigned male voices to Concert Chorale, making Choralaires a women's chorus, Mabry said. Approximately 30 women became in- volved in the fall activities of Choralaires, which was primarily a preparatory choral group that focused on the development of proper vocal technique and improvement of music sight-reading. During the first semester Mabry tried to improve the skills of choir members by in- troducing them to challenging music oriented to the female voice. Some of the accomplishments of the fall semester included learning and performing "Ceremony of Carols," a collection of music with harp accompaniment by Ben- jamin Brittain. Most of the first semester was spent rehearsing and mastering the collection that was later performed at the Christmas choral concert. Also, Mabry instructed the choir in sight-reading many choral works by various composers in order to familiarize Choralaires with notable musical pieces while improving sight-singing skills. Many new members joined Choralaires for the spring semester, and with an in- creased number of men auditioning for positions in the spring, Choralaires once again became a mixed chorus. The group devoted much of the spring rehearsal period preparing a concert that was performed in February as part of the annual Lectureship activities and in- augural festivities. The 40-member chorus joined other ACU choral organizations in a perfor- mance celebrating the inauguration of William J. Teague, the ninth president of ACU. Choralaires finished the year in April with a spring concert in Cullen Auditorium. l This page: top A Robin Whisenant, a sophomore nursing major from Durant, Okla., and Paul Rotenberry, a junior ac- counting majorfrom Abilene, sing during a concert in Cullen Auditorium, center A Lori Farrington, an oral communication disorders major from Poquoson, Va., and Kaleen Smith, afreshman psychology ma- jor from San Antonio, perform at a con- certfollowing the Lectureship assembly in Moody Coliseumg bottom - Members of Choralaires.
