Water Fountain:

The Argument

o Memorize- memorize through measure 34 (page 6); there are tracks on this in Chorus Connection

o Watch the Vancouver Youth Choir Video for how we will do “choral-opgraphy” with looks, crossed arms, gestures, etc.). We will do that for the first 6 pages next rehearsal!


o Memorize (this should be the easiest of all): Memorize to letter D (p. 6)

· In Meeting We Are Blessed, P. 10- you received this last night; this should be in Dropbox/Chorus Connection soon; sorry about that!


Put It In The Piggy (here’s our recording:

o Memorize- memorize the first 4 pages by Saturday, Feb. 1

o Here’s a recording of the accompaniment only that we used last night: (corrected!)

Mashed Potato/Love Poem (here’s a great recording:

o Memorize if you wish but not required

o We’ll check parts next time- this was pretty good. We need to work on musical expression

Bring Me Little Water, Silvy
