Master Choral Class Brings School Communities Together

In early 2014, Ranney’s Lower and Middle School Chorus welcomed fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade choral students from a local public school to its campus for a 90-minute collaborative Master Chorale Class. Led by Ranney music teachers Lilly Torrente and Lisa Geene and Indian Hill School’s music director Meredith Thomas, the students shared warm-up and diction techniques and performed two songs each for their student counterparts before enjoying a snack and some time to socialize. They also learned to harmonize their voices and sang together. “The master class offered a performance opportunity as well as experience in working with another choral director,” said Ranney School’s Mrs. Torrente of the experience. “It was fun for the students and helped them connect with others who have similar interests. Overall, it was a great experience!”
