NEWSLETTER FOR FRIDAY, MAY 19, 2017
 

Hello Families! 

Has the season blown by so quickly? It feels like we’ve barely begun.  Our final rehearsals were spent putting the final touches on our repertoire for this weekend.  Please take note of the dates and times below.
 
If you have not returned music, please do so at Dress Rehearsal so you are not charged for missing music. Thanks!!!
 
Lastly, please check if you are missing any smaller sized concert uniforms. One was left in the bus storage while on tour and will likely be missed by its owner.
 
See you soon!!!!!

  • Galop

  • Glory, Glory Hallelujah!

  • Here is Music For You

  • Rhythm of Life

  • Antiphonal Cantate (pronounced “cahn TAh teh”)

  • Sight Singing Packet

Practice Assignments:

  • Students should be looking and sight singing packet exercises #1-6 and writing the solfege below (the first note is done for them). They should practice singing them in preparation for next week.

  • I have put a recording of “Galop” on the website. Students should be practicing measures 9-61.

  • We began reading the main melody of “Glory, Glory Hallelujah!” from measures 3-18. Students should be practicing it with both the text, as well as count singing, paying close attention to the whole notes, and tied notes as well as their phrasing with no breath’s between the words “since I laid my burden down.”

Bring a Friend Week is Next Week!!!!

Students received a red flyer that next week is “Bring a Friend” week. This is a chance for students to invite friends who also love to sing to experience singing in our rehearsals and audition to join. If you have a classmate who plays an instrument, or a family member who sings in the shower all the time invite them to join us!
