Greetings, Intermediate Chorus,
I hope you had a productive and fun rehearsal with Lori on Thursday. I apologize for my absence – I was with you in spirit!
Guess what? Do you know there are only 6 regular rehearsals left before our Holidays With Cantabile Dress Rehearsal? If that seems like a small number, you’re right – it is! 6 rehearsals means we all have to bring our best voices and best attitudes to rehearsal each week, so you can successfully learn your music, and have a wonderful concert to share with family and friends. Some basic reminders about rehearsal etiquette:
If we can all remember these simple agreements, we will have a stunning performance and many fun rehearsals ahead! In the words of Hans Christian Anderson:
“Where words fail, music speaks.”
In essence, talking is often just noise, but music SPEAKS. Let’s remember to speak this universal language of music from now on and leave talking and murmuring at the door. This week, please copy the five reminders onto a sheet of paper, and sign your name at the bottom, so Lori and I know you are on board and understand the level of commitment involved at Cantabile. I will be collecting your signatures in rehearsal next week! Thanks in advance!

Peter, Go Ringa Dem Bells
This sounded lovely last week – the harmonies are settling, and you sways were so effective in helping us feel the long phrases. You created beautiful vowels and a lovely, unified tone.
Peace on earth….and lots of little crickets
