What route are you on?

As for me, all roads lead to the Harmonizers.  Thursdays are both the beginning and the ending  of my weekly journeys. 

It was so good to see your smiling faces on Thursday night.   We all needed to sing a little and chat a little.  It is the start of a new year and there is a light at the end of the tunnel .  We just need to keep ourselves focused on what we can do right now that will keep us all together for the future.  It is not easy but we can do it.  

I plan to do lots more singing this coming Thursday because that’s what we all love to do.  Let’s sing through Sway and Lion and New Orleans before we break into sections to run through Route 66.

Then we will sing through Ain’t misbehavin, checking on counting and dynamics and remembering to bring out the melody line.  Counting in this piece is really important.  Try taping yourself for fun and then practice singing against yourself.  Listen to your recordings and see what you can do to make it better.  Listening to yourself is a great teaching tool.  Don’t criticize your voice quality, instead, listen for correct notes and words and timing.  We are not a chorus of solo voices (thank goodness) but we all have good voices and they blend well and that’s what counts.  If you sing as if you love singing, it will come through.

Remember the board meeting Monday night the 11th.  Please attend if you can.  Your board welcomes your input.  The links for the board meeting and the Musicale on the 12th are at the top of these notes. Remember, you can come to the Musicale just to listen.
