The Lesser Joy ... 'note-crunching'
WOW! you are truly amazing. Note-crunching is never fun and always hard work, but you have all embraced it and we are learning so much so quickly. Thank you for your dedication. I heard some real music occuring in When Christmas Comes - that's what happens once we know the notes.
When you are listening this week - please review your parts for Mary, Did You Know, When Christmas Comes and Lesser Joys of Christmas.
In addition, - the above video is a version of I Heard the Bells. It is really stirring if you sing it with conviction - something a little different and challenging for NWS, but i suspect you are all up for the challenge.
I'm working on recording the Swingin' Christmas, but it will be next week before I can finish it. This week is taken up with our Watercolours and Jazz program.
Next rehearsal - I heard the bells, Mary Did you Know, Swingin' Christmas (part 2) I Heard the Bells - secure the parts. Hope to start to review - Snow Snow Snow - Irving Berlin. (check your recordings from last year.)
For those who asked - here's the recipe for the spread we enjoyed at last social

1 - 8 1/2 oz. tin crushed pineapple well drained
2 cups toasted chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons chopped green onion

Cream cheese till soft and smooth .
Add remaining ingredients and mix well
Spread remaining 1 cup of nuts onto wax paper and roll cream cheese to desired shape

Note ; I made half of this recipe for smaller cheese log as this makes about 3 1/2 cups
