SCHOOL ORGANIZATION: SENIOR CHOIR STRUCTURE

Vesna School Organization

Senior Choir consists of four voice parts, each managed by a head boy or a head girl, one of which is Secretary of Choir Student Council. The Council is a supporting organ that the Directors count on in all issues educational and artistic. The Heads manage the patronage of senior students over juniors, taking all necessary steps to make sure everyone knows their part and eventually determining who is ready for a concert and who has yet to practice more. The teachers frequently consult the Heads and take into accounts their comments and observations when marking the hardest-to-perform parts in order to allocate additional time to work on them.

Each Choir is divided into sections, 15-18 people each. Every section has junior and senior members, sopranos and alts. Sections develop naturally, with seniors graduating and leaving the Choir, making place for juniors. Sections play an organizational and educational role and are headed by Section Leaders, experienced choir members that have proved their ability to organize and lead. Yet everyone’s equal and among friends here.

The Section Leader Council, headed by Secretary, addresses the numerous issues related to the role each Section plays in the life of the Choir. According to Choir Charter, the Section Leader Council is the main organ that assists the Director in all organizational matters.

Mentioned must also be several other very important bodies. These are the Senior Choir Library, the School Museum, Medical Sector, Records, Display and Decoration, and others. Leaders of these bodies comprise Choir Council headed by Chair, the kindest, the most respected kid, assisted by Secretary of the Council.

The Council is elected on the yearly basis by the General Session in Summer Camp. Every Council member is chosen in accordance with their “professional” inclination which naturally means taking into consideration their personal tendencies and abilities. Yet the main election criteria remain adherence to the cause of the Choir, commitment to its life and its members, strong desire to make sure everyone is happy singing, that unbroken professional continuity be achieved, that neither the adults nor the kids ever be ashamed of their behavior and upbringing, that VESNA remain the Music Republic, as it was once called by the paper ‘Moskovsky Komsomolets’.
