Looks as if we are truly rounding the corner on this virus. Let’s all do our part to stay safe and make sure we can gather safely in the not so distant future.
Lots planned before that happens so please mark your calendars.
This Thursday there will be a new piece , Aquarius, on the website. If you have a chance to print a copy for Thursday night rehearsal that would be good but not necessary. I will go over some of the pitfalls you might run into and talk a little about techniques to learn it. There are practice tapes and a 4 part recording (not perfect but gives you the general idea of the piece).
If you are a lead and missed last weeks rehearsal, you need to take note that measure 42 in Will the Circle will be sung as written. This is a change from the tape on the website.
April 22nd we will listen to a recording made by Shelly Friedman which will target suggestions for improving our visuals in our videos and will address some warmups to help us sing “in the mask” to produce a better show chorus sound. She can’t be with us on Thursdays so she is producing this video just for us. Shelly helped us with our choreography for the last show. She is fantastic.
April 22nd. Begin recording Soon for our next video. The “gold Standard “ that you will be using for that recording will be ready before then. I’ll let you know when it is on the Website.
May 6th. I hope we will start making our Video of Soon. Deadline for the video is May 20th
May 13th. Our guest, Mary Mauch will be leading us in warmups. I’ll get more bio information for you. I’m very excited to have her work with us as she will bring another approach to good singing.
May 15th. Two things to mark. First, it’s Gina’s birthday. Second, thanks to Betsy, there is an opportunity to meet outside at the Wilmette park district house on the lake near the outdoor theater. I need to find out the specific name. Betsy has use of the facility all afternoon and we can use it and possibly sing outside from 1 to 2. We will be considering that as we get closer to the date.
TBA. Summer party. If we could do it last summer, we can certainly do it this summer with 100 percent vaccinated.
As for this coming Thursday , I still have lots of names in my ziplock baggie so come prepared to sing or speak parts of New Orleans. We will also work again on It don’t mean a thing and I think we should sing New Orleans completely for memory. You certainly have it down by now. If you can do it by yourself, you will be able to do it once we are together.
And lastly, we need to sing through all of our video songs so that we don’t forget them. Again, try them for memory. If you can’t do it, you know you have work to do.
See you Thursday.
