My sincere apologies for forgetting to email you last week to let you know that a blog had been posted! Thank you to those of you who went searching the Member Only page of the website and discovered it there. I am feeling better this week and am back in the groove for posting blogs by Friday each week.
Using the blog to guide your practice is doubly important in the next few weeks as we have two major events happening in the very near future, the Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration concert on January 21 and the Four Bridges recording on February 4.
The songs for the January 21 Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration concert are listed below in order of priority for practicing.
Equally important to practice is Four Bridges. This is not a piece you can put off practicing until the last minute. It requires steady, frequent practice to get it into your mind and muscles. Plan to sing through it at least 5 times outside of rehearsal each week.
PARENTS: LOOKING AHEAD…
January 17, 2018 – regular rehearsal and rehearsal with FCC adult and bell choirs
January 21, 2018 – CONCERT: Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration concert – Driving Out the Darkness
February 4, 2018 – Four Bridges (Montalvo Arts Center project) recording session
If you ever have questions or need help with an assignment, don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com . Make it a great week!
Practice using your voice part track below. Remember to practice stepping in place (beginning on your right foot), clapping and arm/fist movements at the end as you see it in this video.
