New director takes oer at Highline Chorale

By Winter Dorval - Staff Reporter



Highline's Chorale is singing a new tune this fall.

Dr. Janene Nelson is leading Chorale this year.

"I was contacted in September to teach Class Voice. I started talking to the head of the music department, Dr. Ben Thomas, about teaching choir in the Winter," said Dr. Nelson.

"During our conversation he asked me if I wanted to teach Chorale this year as well and I said yes."

Chorale is a course that explores a wide array of musical styles, and genres from around the world.

"Initially, I would like to do something that gives the students exposure to a diverse range of different types of music, and genres (such as classical, and jazz)," said Dr. Nelson.

"The student makeup is quite diverse, with a wide range of backgrounds," said Dr. Nelson.

"My favorite part about this is that every student brings individual experiences."

A goal for Chorale is to gain recognition within the college and the community, said Dr. Nelson.

"Dr. Thomas and I are both recruiting in the greater community. I have connections in Federal Way and Auburn. I'm hoping to connect with them, and branch out to the outer communities too," Dr. Nelson said.

The two-credit course is offered Mondays and Wednesdays 12:15-3:05 p.m. in Building 4, room 104.

Dr. Nelson said she is hopeful that the Choral may perform on campus before the end of Fall Quarter.

Chorale has historically performed once a quarter on campus.
