- Vocal jazz and music theatre
- Multicultural considerations
- Movement and rhythm
- Commissioning works for choirs
- Choral programs in urban settings
- Touring with your choir

Also included with the book is a CD containing recordings of exemplary high school choral performance models. This book breaks new ground in choral music education, providing choral directors with the tools necessary to be successful in the classroom and at the podium.
