#beginquote# I have been in the situation you are now in, of having know-nothing pen-pushers attempt to dictate the singing style I was using with a school choir (SDA school) of 21 ranging from 6 to 14- I even had one person object to ""Summertime"" (Porgy and Bess) because it was ""too sad"":). I invited several well known local musical people to rehersal, and made sure that during the break they remarked on just how fine the material was and how well the keys I had chosen fitted the voices in that age range. Worked a treat, but it stuck in my craw so much that this year I switched schools. #endquote#
