MetadataShow full item record
This study investigated the criteria conductors use to select repertoire for beginner secondary school choirs and is based on a qualitative research design. The research was guided by a social constructivist worldview and is an explanatory case study. Data were collected through interviewing five experienced and established choir conductors who conduct secondary school choirs. Five themes crystallised through the data analyses, which are Education, Vocal ability, Type of choir, Programme choice and Audience preference and development. This study leads to further recommendations about possible research on repertoire that is best suited for beginner secondary school choirs and choir singing as experienced by the choristers and the audiences themselves.
