Abstract

The purpose of this study is (1) to determine to what degree music in the contemporary idiom is used in the senior high schools of the State of Washington, (2) to determine how receptive high school choral directors, high school choral members, and the listening public are to this music, and (3) to analyze phenomena peculiar to music in general and phenomena peculiar to choral music only in selected examples using this idiom.
