Hi, Bravi and VTG:
You have made beautiful progress this year. During this past week’s rehearsal, I was exceedingly proud of your preparedness, your flexibility, and your beautiful singing. And what an experience and incredible opportunity we have to make music with Laura Inserra! This will be a concert to remember, for sure.
BUT! (Isn’t there always one of these?) …
After hearing “Rain Music,” I asked how it went (since I was playing piano and couldn’t watch). The response was: “They sound incredible! But they look really unhappy.” So while your singing is incredible, we must remember that a concert is also a visual experience. There will be so much to hear and see at this concert — Laura’s incredible playing, a video and visual component as well… you must rise to the occasion so that you are also the focal point of the performance. Rehearse this way. Practice this way in your own time. Always perform.
Action Items/Expectations: all singers should be able to put a checkmark next to the items below.
Additional Announcements and Reminders:
Only a portion of the pieces are covered below. All singers must practice all pieces each week.
