Fall Concert: The Strength of Family

For Next Rehearsal:

Next rehearsal, we'd like to see each of you become a bit braver about singing out ALL the time. A good, supported sound even through learning of the music means that we can achieve musicality sooner. 

TOUR SINGERS: Please wear your concert polo (if you have one) so that we can take an ensemble picture at 7:55 p.m.

Please be sure to review and work through completing solfege so that we can be in the music fully. As a reminder, here are some things to keep in mind when filling out solfege in your music:

    • You don’t need to write out the whole syllable.
    • Be sure to line up your syllable with the note: The “d” should be UNDER or ABOVE the note head (depending on what’s easiest for each singer), not NEXT TO it. 
    • Circle all rests. We snap on these when speaking or singing solfege.
    • Add count singing to held and tied notes more than a quarter note. 
      • In 4/4, a half note on do is “d 2” if it starts on beat one. 
    • When you finish the section, go back and review your part. Speak and sign it in rhythm.
