So close to perfection

February 10, 2015

You may remember my comment about a dream of perfect attendance someday.  Well this week we came so close.  (I knew the room looked exceptionally full!).  This week we achieved a 3% absenteeism.  Thank you all so much for your dedication.  You are sounding great and just getting better and better.  I hope you are as excited about the music as I am.  AND we got so much done.

Here's a quick summary of what you could review this week should you find yourself with extra time on your hands. ;-)

1.  Get Happy - Beginning to measure37.  ( I love the enthusiasm with which you sing these 37 bars.)  Check Wednesday or Thursday to hear recordings of your parts. 


2. Moonlight Serenade - 149 - 172.  NOTE:  181-192 different words to the same notes.


3.  Lake Isle of Innisfree - measures 1 - 39 - notes and text.  Your will find it helpful to read the text several times.  Visualize the pictures your are portraying musically.


4.  California Dreamin - Altos - congrats - I can tell you have been working on the second verse, it is much stronger and more confident than two weeks ago.  Men I know you enjoy singing this, but remember your real challenge is to listen to the sopranos and balance your part.  Sopranos - keep listening, it will get stronger as you feel more confident.


5.  Everything's coming up Roses. -

Tenors - please keep reviewing the opening pages - you're doing very well with it, but it will leave you quickly if your not reviewing it. 

Measures 49- 65 - sorry I started this at the end of rehearsal - it's hard to concentrate on new notes when you are tired and you worked so hard, I could tell the choir was really tired.  If your listen to this section a few times, I'm sure you will get it. 

Once we get to measure 99, the rest is based on repetitions.


Next Week,

 We finish Moonlight Serenade!  ( use it at the singout in February).

Roses - measure 49 - 99

Danny Boy - musical lines -  listen to the recording on this page (it's beautiful)

Get Happy - we'll review 38 - 41  and learn notes to measure 63.

Lake Isle of Innisfree - review to measure 39, new - 40 to 55


Have a great week everyone, and Happy Valentine's Day.  Je t'aime.
