Dear Bravi and VTG members,
What a good first rehearsal on Monday! I truly enjoyed seeing you all again.
Here is a link to an excellent recording (by Chanticleer) of Ther Is No Rose. Please listen particularly to both the lightness and purity of the tone – I want to work to achieve this in our own performance.
Here is a link to a wonderful performance of Twas The Night Before Christmas. I absolutely love this rendition – please become familiar with this as well.
Here is a link to an excellent recording of You Got Ta Move. Get in the groove with this one – the rhythms will be so much easier that way…
For next week, please practice on these pieces, particularly on Rose and Move. Rose, please work to become perfectly acquainted with your own part so that you are able to work on vocal technique with it. Move, please get all the rhythms as good as possible so that we are able to focus on perfecting them in rehearsal.
See you on Monday!
David and Jace (VTG)
