7 rehearsals to Concert!!!

March 7, 2018

 

I'm always caught by surprise when I realize how quickly time passes.  The concert will be here very soon.  I hope you are as excited as I am.  (despite my sleepless nights😉).  

 

For our singout next week, we welcome our new members. The program will be this year's concert repertoire, so we will have a really good idea of how well we are doing.  

 

Here's my summary or where we are:  - if your aren't there - please start listening!

Grand Night - all notes taught with new ending. - next  - tighten the rhythm, add dynamics and make music - good work everyone.  

Yemaya - all notes taught - PROBLEM - every person must count to 6 in every bar and it must be together - until we can do this consistently, I have to keep this as a tentative piece for this years concert. 

The Journey - all notes taught and there are some musical moments in your performance.  Next - more finess. (well done everyone)

Get Happy - worked on measures 1 - 51.  Next - must learn 52 - end  (please listen to your part as much as possible and we can do this quickly.)  - careful - are your rhythms accurate?

The Colours of My Life - - we have learned measure 1 - 51, 65-66.  There are a few notes that need to be reviewed, but for the most part the notes have been taught.  Now we need to feel that subdivided beat (1&2&3&4&).  This keep the music flowing - otherwise the performance becomes static.

My Favourite Things - all notes - key to success - DIction, Diction, Diction - short crisp consonants, connected vowels.  We are well on our way.  Good work!

Song of the Land - we need to be more aware of the sixteenth (quick) notes.  Keep the beat and listen to each other.  - we have reviewed the notes up to Letter E  - we still need to review from page 7 - end

One Song - well done everyone-  I am very pleased at how accurately you are singing the rhythms - there are some really complicated spots and you have mastered them (proof that we can do it).  To Learn:  - last 4 bars.  Please keep reviewing.  

Walk in the Wind - need to review notes of last page - words words words.  How are you going to bring this picture to life for your audience?  

I Am Song -We have worked on notes and words up to measure 44 - Next - words and notes measure 45 - 68.

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life - looking for some really outgoing actors to make this come alive - (preferrably male) any volunteers? 

Choir has learned page 3 measures 10 - 17, measures 26 -33, measures 45 - 52 .measures 64 -end.

 

HELP - Does anyone know where we can find 80 kazoos really cheap?

 

When you look at it, this is a really interesting program.  Serious, inspirational, humorous, varied  -

So proud of all of you.  Keep working and I will too.
