Greetings Intermediate Singers,
Thank you for your hard work and focus yesterday. We had to spend a lot of time on just a few songs, but this is the sort of work we will need to do in the coming weeks, as we refine and polish for our Holidays With Cantabile concert.
Trivia Question: “Durme Durme” is the title of a song we are starting next week – it is the Sepharic word for one of my favorite activities. What do you think it is? 🙂
This week, watch and listen to the following:
Important work: Study and memorize Bidi Bom, If the Snow Could Sing and Circle ‘Round the Moon – listen to your part (attached below) and know it well!
Other points for this week:
Nice work in your new rows. Please remember this is our formation for the rest of the semester, leading up to the concert. We will still start in a circle, which should always be in boy-girl order. Our goal for next week is to form this circle quietly and quickly as soon as rehearsal begins.
Musicianship: I am really happy with your sight-singing work, and the lovely sound you are creating as you sing through a number of canons.
Next week, Intermediate A will continue with sight-singing, going over Dynamic Markings in music, and 2-3 rounds of Rhythm Gossip. For next week, please complete pages 25-28, or the supplementary work below.
Intermediate Honors will sight-sing some new canons, go over a number of Time Signatures, and play some rounds of Rhythm Gossip! For next week, please complete pages 25-28, or the supplementary work below.

Trivia Answer: “Durme Durme” means “Sleep, Sleep!”
Have a great weekend!
