Hi, VTG and Bravi:
Thanks for a productive rehearsal this past Monday. For those of you (Bravi only) who showed up at the Sunday rehearsal, we thank you for your dedication and the extra time. Let’s strive to see even more participation this Sunday! Here are a few things to think about before next Monday… and remember, we DO have regular rehearsal, even though the SSA singers will be in Monterey. It’s just us (woo-hoo!).
This week’s blog will cover bigger concepts and general ideas more so than usual–the specifics are largely in place, so we need to work on bringing this music alive.
Action Items for Monday:
Concepts from this past week:
— do not over-aspirate “K’s.” They should sound more like a hard “g” than an English/American “k.”
— Sing through the double consonants (for example, “KaNNNa”)
— Use a similar treatment for “kai-ki” even though the “k” is not doubled.
Sing We Now of Christmas
Suo Gan (Bravi only)
Ya viene la vieja (Bravi only)
O Come All Ye Faithful (Bravi only)
Other announcements and reminders:
Always our best,
Jace, Elena, Jazmine, and Justin
