I absolutely LOVE learning new music (just ask anyone who has sung in a quartet with me - ha!).   So it's very exciting to be studying new charts and learning tracks - looking forward to hearing the notes come alive with your voices!
One of the things I love about OSC is that we learn music pretty quickly.  Historically, you're given 3 weeks to learn a song, using the tools provided (learning tracks or recordings of the song being sung by a group), asking for help when/if needed, and doing whatever it is that YOU, as an individual singer, need to do to learn the song in that time.  Then we have a few section rehearsals to fix any problem spots that you discover along the way.  (I've asked the section leaders to not spend time in sectionals teaching notes.)
Happy Together is going to be a great addition to our repertoire.  It's a familiar tune and will be a crowd-pleaser.  The Cat Song is going to be a ton of fun but will take quite a bit longer to learn.  I'm assuming 1-2 months for that one to get off the ground.  So please get started on it right away.  I'll be making some piano tracks of it this coming weekend so watch for those to come next week if I can get them done!  I'm sure going to try!
Rock Your Mission -  it's gonna be another fun year for OSC!
Love - Kathy
