Great job yesterday! We did a lot of repertoire work and I was appreciative of everyone's focus throughout the rehearsal.
Welcome Song: "Good Evening" (ABA Form - full piece without echoes)
Warm-up: slide whistle echoes, descending pentascales on "ah" (so fa mi re do)
Lonely Goatherd: learned chorus (echo singing, and then ran through); introduced coda/ending
Please note that we will not be singing the verses for this song in Prep, just the choruses and the ending
So Long Farewell: reviewed opening ("There's a sad" until "coo coo")
Goodbye Song: "Goodbye Friends"
Homework: Please check out FileShare and practice singing all pieces, working towards memorization.

Regarding Theory and the Recorder
You may be wondering when we are going to use our written book and our recorders! Stay tuned -- I'm hoping to launch into these after the recording deadlines for Sound of Music. Please continue to hang onto them!
