This demonstrates what I'm saying quite well.

I mean ignorant in that there's clearly a lack of understanding as to why other show choirs might sing ballads.

I am absolutely fine with another show choir not doing a ballad- go for it! If it works for your show, own it! But the fact that there's a belief that other choirs sing ballads because they simply can't hack it vocally without sitting or standing still... that tells me you aren't understanding something about why other choirs might do what they do. It has nothing to do with whether a group can or can't sing and dance at the same time. Nothing.


agreed.

Too much choreography would take away from appropriately conveying the meaning of the song.

Right, show choir is about singing first, and is it our fault if we can do both at the same time?

Traditionally, the rules, at least around here, state that the choir may perform any program they wish. With that being said, the ballad is the one time in the show that shows which choirs sing and which choirs SING. Show choir was, is, and always should be about being a choir first, and this is where that comes to the forefront.

By the way, I agree with Ana, ignorant is absolutely the correct term.

Clever, not really. Irritated by ignorant philosophies being passed on to students, absolutely.

That's not COMPLETELY true, Ty...we don't like the idea of a SITTING show choir song. The idea is that we can dance AND sing. If you want to just stand, perform as a concert choir. I think that maybe if Wahlert ever really did a true ballad, there's no way it would be sitting, or at least not very long.

...Elaborate, fiend. Why can't our choir believe that sitting and singing isn't necessary? Our choir is a team, and WE believe what WE believe.


I don't think a ballad is necessary, however a ballad is traditionally expected in a show choir performance.

Just My Opinion.

A. it wasn't bitterness. It was thinly veiled sarcasm.

B. As soon as I find a choir who thinks sitting and singing is NECESSARY, I'll send them your way so their philosophy can be corrected.

C. Fiend? Really?

If it was a real question, then yes...that's what we believe.


It's sad that you can use the word "we" in your post. I suppose 95% of show choirs should just cease to exist and stick to being concert choirs. I'll spread the word to directors.
