Virtuoso: "To be an expert at musicality"
THINGS FOR NEXT REHEARSAL: 9/26
Be sure you are working on keeping things fresh between rehearsals. Thank you to those of you that have been working ahead!
Look at and listen to ALL of Movement 7.
p. 85-88 is the Swahili section. Practice this section by speaking in rhythm to become comfortable with the text.
Review all of Movement 5. Be secure in your pitches so that you can work on phrasing. We’ll run this next week.
Practice Movement 1.
Be practicing this entire movement. We know that we haven’t rehearsed the whole thing, but much of it is similar to what we’ve done. Work on the sections we haven’t spent as much time on.
We’ll run next rehearsal.
JUBILATE DEO REHEARSAL AIDS -- balanced and part-dominant tracks and pronunciation guides

Lift Ev'ry Voice:
Review and practice the entire piece. Remember this does NOT need to be memorized for the concert.
MEMORIZE for next rehearsal!
Where are you unsure?
We worked p. 9 to clean those rhythms. Double check that you’re singing them correctly.
If you were one of the singers that hadn’t practiced to the end of the piece, but sure you have it learned correctly and memorized.
Things to focus on:
Be particular about passing off the melody and your accents.
Style in this is VERY different from the other pieces. Use a forward, open sound.
Listen to it while following your part. (Click on the song title above.)
