In 1968 the first rock major musical Hair caused a sensation and spawned a new genre. This subject will explore the music of significant contemporary rock musicals through a weekly 2-hour large ensemble singing class, using music from a handful of the genre’s best examples, developing skills in safe voice usage and technique, basic music notation, harmonies, song structure and storytelling through song. A one-hour embedded lecture will consider major shows of contemporary music theatre, from mega-musicals like Les Miserables and The Lion King, to juke-box musicals like Jersey Boys and Hairspray and off-Broadway hits like Rent, In the Heights and Next to Normal. The subject will conclude with a short performance featuring a sample of the repertoire covered. No former singing or musical experience is necessary.
