We’re getting there! APOLOGIES SSAA! I completely forgot about Silvy last night (sorry, Cathy!). We’ll get it next week!
Y’all, this is going to be so much fun! Please just get a little more confident in the music before next rehearsal (and the concert!) so we can really cut loose and enjoy what this will bring to the audience. Boy, are they going to be surprised!!
PLEASE GO OVER OUR MUSIC A FEW TIMES (AT LEAST!) THIS WEEK!
Our final rehearsal will be this coming Monday:
SSAA: 6:00-6:45 pm
SATB: 8:30-9:15 pm
TO DO LIST (SATB):
The Argument (you may use a Lyric Sheet on your stands)
o Memorize- memorize all!
o There are tracks on this in Chorus Connection. To get to all the tracks in Chorus Connection:
§ Go to the Member Portal https://www.coppellcommunitychorale.com/member-portal
§ Enter password Broadway101
§ Click on the arrow for Rehearsal Tracks
§ Click on Chorus Connection (note login info if this is your first time)
§ Click under Music in the top left menu panel for both SATB and SSAA Variations
o Watch the Vancouver Youth Choir Video for how we will do “choral-ography” with looks, crossed arms, gestures, etc.). Feel free to make notes on your own- that will save us time on Saturday (this is also good to practice with once memorized!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8vxLHDDeI0
Connected (You can use stands on this)
o Memorizel. Here is a YouTube I like (I don’t think I’ll worry about the choral-ography just yet- just claps and snaps! LOL!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUKyWJ7DSg0&list=RDNUKyWJ7DSg0&start_radio=1
