Dear Bravi and VTG,
Monday felt SO much better on Seven Bridges Road!! Yes, it lacked some of the “zing” of the original, but you don’t have fully mature voices yet either to produce that “zing,” and this new arrangement is actually quite “zingy” in your voices anyway! 🙂 This is definitely performable, so please work to learn your new parts before Monday.
Also, Red Red Rose is absolutely gorgeous in your voices. I’m really excited about this one. This song absolutely must be learned to the level of The Rose from the Winter Concert. I want you singing this in your sleep – all those entrances and intervals perfectly locked into your brain. This could be a really impressive piece for you.
Finally, please have all of your other concert rep ready to go. In addition to performing it on the concerts, you will also be recording much of this material at our recording session next month, so please perfect it this month.
Just as a note – this is the point in time where much of the rep has lost some of its newness, and you really need to just knuckle down to perfect it in spite of how you may be feeling. It may not be as exciting at this point, but it’s still just as quality music, and it will all be worthwhile in May!
See you soon!
