Notes from Sunday's Rehearsal

I really hope you all are making notes in your music. I don't know how else we can remember what Cory tells us to do at certain points in the music. I know I would be lost without all my notes!

Here are some things Cory mentioned that we need to remember. He said these in the last couple of rehearsals:

I've Got a Crush on You--make sure that the "sh" on "crush" is together. Watch Cory for the cut-offs. Watch your vowels on this piece. Relax, be happy!

I Got Plenty O Nothin--Enunciate! Nobody will understand the words if we don't sing them clearly.

May The Road Rise to Meet You--Please memorize this piece! This is THE piece this season that we MUST form an emotional connection to. (remember what Ralph suggested that one time, when Cory was out of the room...)

Don't talk through the piano introduction to ANY piece. How can you be prepared to come in if you're talking through the introduction?

Reminder for Sunday

Hey, Singers!

Don't forget we have rehearsal this Sunday at 8 pm, at my building.

Remember, too, that we have to have our parts down by that day or Cory will have us sing in 4-part groups. While this can be an interesting exercise, it also is really, really embarrassing if you don't have your part down! So, practice, practice, practice!! Know your part and then you're safe, no matter what happens.

See you Sunday!

New Music Coming!

Cory told us at our last rehearsal that he is reviewing another piece...or two...or three of music to add to our list as an ending song. So, be watching for that.

Spring Season Begins This Week!

Hello Singers!

We start our 2015 season tonight!

Bring your best voices and come on time to start singing Gershwin!

If, like me, you are sadly lacking in knowing who the Gershwins are, (there are two brothers), here's a link to the Gershwin Official Website

It's going to be a fun season! See you soon!
