NOVEMBER 11 - PLAN

posted Dec 5, 2018, 1:39 PM by Kathy Scheel   [ updated Dec 5, 2018, 5:58 PM ]

We will have three performances under our belts before our next rehearsal on November 11th, so we won't need a whole lot of time working on the Christmas songs.  But I'd like to spend just a bit of time on the songs we're singing at the men's show, and then changing up the rest of the evening.

 

5:00-6:15 -  Membership Team meeting (hopefully in the Nest if it's available)

We won't have risers this evening, so it would be very helpful if some of you could arrive early and set up chairs in the main room and possibly get the equipment set up in order for us to possibly view some of the video from the show.  


6:30 - 7:15 - Fairly brief review songs we'll do on the men's show:

Winter Wonderland

BankAmericard

Peace on Earth

Go Tell it on the Mountain

Joy to the World

Oh, Holy NIght 

 

7:15 - 7:45 - Chorus Chat

Share some of your experiences from the show/performances

Possibly view the video of our show performance

 

8:00 - 9:30 - I'LL BE SEEING YOU

Everyone got the learning tools (music & tracks) for this song over 2 weeks ago, and I hope you have been working on it.  I don't expect you to have it memorized by then, but to know it well enough to sing your part all the way through with the sheet music.  Reminder:  On November 18th, you raised your right hand and promised to learn it quickly.  I know that we've been focused on the show but now that the show is behind us with a warm afterglow of sweet memories, it's now time to do whatever is necessary to learn this song by next week.  I'll go through the things that changed from the original and then we'll break into section rehearsals, but those sectionals are NOT for teaching you the notes.  They are for:

·        Catching and addressing problem areas

·        Establishing a solid tonal center - using a keyboard to reinforce the key note

·        Working on unity of all things - breathing, tempo, vowels, energy, emotions, etc.


Be sure to print the most current copy (from Music Library) of both this song (dated 11/25) and After I'm Gone (dated 11/30).
