Practise Does Make it Possible
You should all be very pleased with yourself today - an excellent rehearsal. There was some lovely warm sound and some real excitement in the music as well.
Every section has grown so much this fall. I know I demand a lot from you, but it is really wonderful when it all comes together. Thank you everyone for your dedication and commitment.
A few things to remember - how to sing "ee" and "eeng ".
keep practising those trouble spots - especially words that go very quickly
shaping the vowel so that the note is in tune
what to do on descending music lines.
watch the director
We've made a lot of changes in the music. Each of the changes is meant to adapt the music to make the choir sound even better. Please try to review all those spots so that you don't forget them - especially It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.
I look forward to next week when we can just sing music and add the final touches.
Please wear comfortable shoes and remember we need help at 12:00 to set up the risers.
Oh - and one more thing - sing your music while looking in a mirror so you can see if you look "interested".
Have a great week everyone!
