Greetings, Intermediate Families,

Please enjoy the photos below from your stellar performance at the Holidays With Cantabile Concert. As I already stated so passionately in my email, I was so impressed and pleased with your singing and performance, and I just can’t wait to continue this exciting musical journey with all of you in January!

Please have a relaxing and fun-filled holiday! When you return, we will be going over your musicianship exams before moving on to your next theory book. Everyone tried their very best and did well on the exams, and for those of you who are still working on various concepts, I will be supplying you with some extra tools to help solidify your work in these particular areas of musicianship. If you have some free moments over break, continue perusing the lessons on this site, which will help you brush up on various concepts, such as note recognition, scales, key signatures, time signatures and intervals. 

We will also be starting our new repertoire for our Spring Concert, most of which will be music of Ireland and Latin America. Enjoy this video of one of your new songs, Wild Mountain Thyme!

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday January 7th for our first rehearsal of 2016!

Happy Holidays!

Yours in Song,

Katie
