I am sooooooo happy...

March 17, 2015

What a great rehearsal yesterday!!!  I was exhausted by the end and I heard that many of you were a little tired too. That's a good thing! I hope you all enjoyed the exciting sounds that are developing.  You will all be well prepared for this concert and that will make for a fun afternoon of singing and entertaining.

 

I hope you will all have some time this week to review some of what we have accomplished.  Here' a summary of the key points from yesterday's rehearsal.

 

1.  Everything is Beautiful - at measures 19 - 22, the altos will sing the middle note.  Gentlemen please remember the important timing at measures 23.  Second sopranos - do not sing measures 27 and 28 and be ready to sing measures 29 and 30 strongly.  (ensemble sopranos sing 1st soprano).

Other alto changes - measure 36, 44 - middle note only.

Remember measures 61 - 67 are a repetition of 35 - 42 and this is repeated again.  Trouble spot - page 9.  (I'll go over this again next week).

 

2.  Get Happy - please review 1st alto and 2nd alto parts in this.  We finished page 10 - end of the piece.  Please be careful of the rhythm on page 11. From 81 to the end, repetition in a new key.  CAUTION : measure 89 - a looney for me with everytime someone sings in the rest!!!  I will review page 15 - it needs a little tightening up. 

 

3.  Everything's Coming up Roses - please review all of the changes.  Be sure you have them marked on your music. Review measures 53 and 54.  Second soprano - please review the last page.  Stay on the middle note to protect your voice. 

 

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, LISTEN, LISTEN, LISTEN

 

Plans for next rehearsal: Lake Isle of Innisfree - If everyone could listen to their parts BEFORE the rehearsal, you will learn it very quickly and save so much rehearsal time that can be used polishing  everything else.

Thanks so much for being you. It's such a pleasure working with all of you.  You are quite a team.
