Abstract and Keywords

As editors and contributing authors, we found one of the largest challenges of this project to be the very definition of the project itself. What is Choral Pedagogy? Should this volume focus on research? Conducting theory? A cappella singing? The mentors and trail-blazers in the profession? In fact, we believe that the strength of this project is the effort to acknowledge that a study of choral pedagogy requires a comprehensive approach that embraces the immediate relevance between research, theory, and practice. This chapter speaks to the philosophical stance of the editors, the identity of the book, and how we arrived at a sense of cohesion. At the same time, the editors draw attention to the dynamic nature of the choral endeavor, in this age of global interaction and unprecedented technical advancement in the digital age.

Keywords: choral pedagogy, conducting theory, rehearsal strategy, A Cappella, identity
