October 2019

October 26, 2019

 

Its really hard to believe October is over.  There has been so much going on this fall,- lets hope things settle down a bit so we can enjoy the upcoming Christmas season. 

 

There are so many wonderful sounds coming from the choir.  I so appreciate the attention and work you put forth every week at rehearsals.  I marvel at times over all that the choir as a whole has learned over the years.  The choir has taken on a personality of its own.  All of our new members are doing so well , there is so much to learn.  I can only encourage you by saying, you can't learn it all in one season.  It takes a year or two, but make no mistake your contribution is very important and probably considerably more than you realize..

 

 

 Well here we are.  I just looked at the calendar - we have 5 rehearsals and 1 dress rehearsal before the concert.  Where did that time go???

Here are the pieces that I am confident will be ready for the concert  so far - 

1. A Merry Christmas Wish

2.  Christmas is Coming*

3.  Ding a ding *- If we all keep listening to the recordings.

4.  Irving Berlin

5.  Somewhere in my Memory

 

PLEASE REMEMBER - you get more from recordings when listening and following the music.  

If you sing along right away - you don't hear the wrong notes you may be singing.

 

This Week we will work on 

1.   Snow Snow - pages 2 - 8.  This is a review for many of you and you have a recording.

2.   Sleigh Ride -  men - please be very careful at measure 29.  and 37

 

                 Measures 63 -  98.  challenge is in the words - there are a lot of them but pay attention to                                  the word picture you are painting. If you have a picture in your mind, you are more                                prepared for the lyric.

3.  This Christmas - start at D  - end

4.  Believe - start at 57 - end 

Review Ding a Ding - NoteWorthy Singers - Chorus 1, NoteWorthy Jazz - Chorus 2

5.  Nutcracker Jingle 

 

Tenors and Basses - please don't forget we will gather at 12:30.  5 rehearsals to learn it.

 

Have a great week everyone
