Hi everyone,

Thanks to all who are singing on the 26th.  You are sounding good and with two more rehearsals you will be prime time.  Let’s aim for 6:30  this Thursday.  Off the paper on all songs.

A second reminder to mark your calendars.   The show committee has set a date of Sunday November 6th at 3:00 for our 2022, 70th show.  The next step is to secure our venue, Lake Street Church.  This date works around religious holidays in Sept. and October and allows for double rehearsals several weeks prior to the show.  

I was really encouraged with the progress we made on It don’t mean a thing.  The tempo change felt good and I really liked the interp on the word “sweet”. (Thanks Ruthie).  Let’s aim for the first THREE pages off the paper and we’ll drill them this Thursday.  The show com. plans to start our show with this piece.

Lullaby of the Leaves is also falling into place.  Dynamics are key to this song so singing it in person to hear the louds and softs and subtle breath marks are so important.  Whenever you can attend in person, we need you.

Aquarius moves will be reviewed each week. I hope to get some written instructions on line as soon as we feel secure that they won’t change.  Sometimes you need to live with a move for a week or two.

And we need to add a page of You’ve got a friend.

(We need a three hour rehearsal!!!!)

Don’t forget our other songs. We may find some time to review them by having ensembles sing them, or have  a guessing game where one part hums a section and we have to guess the song.  Or maybe we’ll have an off the paper, write out the words exercise.  So many ways to learn these songs and have fun doing it. 

HERE THEY ARE

It  don’t mean a thing

Ain’t misbehaving

Lion sleeps tonight

Will the circle be unbroken

Aquarius

New Orleans

Lullaby of the leaves

You’ve got a friend

 

See you Thursday. 

Alice
