What Is a Sectional?


In Glee, the hit Fox TV show about a high school "glee club," Will always seems to be telling people to "get ready for sectionals." It's almost a running gag. But in case you're not a regular "Gleek," what is a sectional?

If you've ever belonged to a glee club, a choir, a band or an orchestra, you'll know that a sectional is when the different parts or sections of the group split up during a rehearsal to focus on their own parts. This author fondly recalls breaking off for cello sectionals during his youth orchestra years. It's a chance for cellists, violinists, brass players, wind sections, tenors, sopranos, basses and everyone else to practise their parts before everyone comes back together to perform as a full group.
