Focus: Choral Music in Global Perspective introduces the little-known traditions and repertoires of the world’s choral diversity, from the prison choirs of Thailand and the gay and lesbian choral organizations of the Western world, to the community choruses in the Middle East and the youth choruses of the United States. The book weaves together the stories of individuals, organizations, their music, and their pedagogies, while illustrating the author’s research about how choral culture is interacting with societies worldwide and transforming the lives of its members.

Through an engaging series of portraits beyond the scope of extant texts and studies, the author explores the dynamic, global realm of choral activity and repertoire. These personal portraits of musical communities are enriched by sample repertoire lists, performance details, and research that repositions a once Western phenomenon as a global concept. Focus: Choral Music in Global Perspective is an accessible, engaging, and provocative study of one of the world’s most widespread and globalized music-making activities.
