SONG LINEUP for Dec 7 show!

I've made a couple of changes to the lineup of songs we'll perform for A'Cappella Spirit on December 7th.  Please be sure you've got all of these on your schedule to rehearse so you can bring your very best voice and performance skills to chorus each week.  YOU do the individual work, and WE work on unity of all things - vowels, breathing, vocal placement and resonance, diphthongs, dynamics, attacks/releases, and choreography.  The sooner you are solid on these songs, the easier it will be to add the visual elements that bring the songs to life!  That's what our audiences want ad expect when they come to see Oregon Spirit Chorus - and it's what we want for ourselves.  Give yourself goosebumps!

When Tori Postma comes to coach us on October 18-19 (be sure it's on your calendar), we will be focusing primarily on the songs After I'm Gone and I'll Be Seeing You, so I've put them into the show lineup.  And I've removed Let Freedom Ring so you don't need to worry about that one.  Our nod to Pearl Harbor Day (Dec 7) will be the Star-Spangled Banner.  I am also considering a different finale - perhaps not doing the 8-part arrangement of Feliz Navidad because of the time constraints of rehearsing it with the men's chorus.  For now, I'll leave it as "possible" and will let you know as soon as I've made that decision (which will be soon!).
