Fall Concert: The Strength of Family

Concert Sunday!

Call Time -- 2:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary

Fully Memorized & Performance Ready

Keep in mind what each song means and what you need to convey to the audience.

For all your music:

  1. Practice through your songs as WHOLE pieces. The more you sing straight through them, the more musical they can become.
  2. BE CONFIDENT! You are a great musician so be confident in your abilities!
  3. Specific notes for each piece are below.

Morokeni: 

  • Keep your own beat when singing rather than wait to hear the percussion.
    • Work to keep your sung part accented and with clean diction.
  • Keep the energy in this! It is the opener for the concert.
  • Listen here to the example.
    • Click here for a playlist with most of the pieces in one place.
    • Click here for a great performance example of this piece.

Music in My Mother's House:

  • Check the lyrics you're missing and become confident with them.
  • Be sure to listen for other parts for correct balance.
  • Listen here.

Tongo:

  • Be comfortable with the clapping for your voice part. It should be confidently performed without being overpowering. Keep the claps light and musical.
  • Listen here.
    • Click here for a playlist with most of the pieces in one place.

The Sound of Our Home:

We will be performing the American premiere of this piece! Remember: no excuses, only success!
