The Art and Science of Planning a Choral Concert by Barbara Harlow. Text. Published by Santa Barbara Music Publishing (SB.SBMP-1805).
Planning a choral concert requires consideration of the conductor's vision, the singers' hopes, and the audience's expectations. The underpinnings of a great concert are many and varied, and this book explores the planning process from conception all the way to the after-concert reception. Harlow's experience is sure to provide valuable insight into every facet of a concert, and her discussion of programming can be especially helpful for new conductors. Suggestions, observations, and ready-to-use databases are included with this important resource for all choral conductors.
