Artemis was the twin of Apollo and the goddess of hunting and the wilderness. Her images often evoke power and strength. Artist renditions of the great Temple of Artemis show an enormous structure that symbolizes the power of the goddess. This piece is filled with strong open harmonies and powerful rhythms. Block style is utilized as well as call and answer, which will help your students become independent in their performance. Technical challenges are limited, thereby allowing students and directors to focus on the artistic interpretation of the piece.
