Whew! I can't believe we did so much in 60 minutes.
1. Adam Mason, who will be doing Orff and movement activities, started off choir with a name game. Moving forward, he will visit us once a month. At the October retreat, we will get to do more activities with Adam.
2. Each week we will start with work in the theory books. The choristers are at different levels. They were each assigned work to do - one page each. This is due by next rehearsal. They need to bring their theory books each week.
3. Crickets - For practice, please review the text, especially the rolled r's and the endings of words. Choristers should be able to sing the last two pages. "Rikiki" should be memorized - we reviewed this in class. Remember breath comes from the belly and not the shoulders.
4. Griffin - Celeste started this with the choir today. It is in two parts. We will be learning both parts. The Prep choir will also be singing the top line. For review, please review text - we will review the melody next week.
In the next few weeks, we will also be looking at Turkeys United, Blue Skies, and Chili Caliente. The choir will receive this music next week.
Have a great week!
