It was wonderful to see you all last Wednesday at our first rehearsal of the spring semester. I hope you were able to reconnect and visit with family and friends over the break. If you read all the way to the end of this blog, you can see the furry faces that greeted me in Colorado! Spending time with them, as well as my human family of course, has refreshed me and created space in my head and heart for the adventures awaiting Ensemble just around the corner.
The songs for the January 21 Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration concert are listed below in order of priority for practicing.
Don’t forget to work on Four Bridges, too. 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 10, 2018 – regular rehearsal (as per usual)
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
