The Capstone Course in Ensemble Performance Creation entails a fall course in which students envision together whatever project they want to pursue in the spring: a showcase, concert, full play or musical, devised project, etc. Each student takes on a different role in the planning/production process. The second half, which is a production, happens in the spring – likely the first slot in our season but could be the second. Students would also each produce a reflection paper about the performance OR the SMP is still an option. Like the SMP, the project should include a research process and a reflection written by each student on the social context, the body of literature, or the conceptual framework to which it is a contribution.
