Greetings, Intermediate Singers!
Thank you so much for another great rehearsal on Thursday, and for your wonderful work with our guest, Lori. You made her feel very welcome, and I know she was so impressed by your sound, and by all the progress you were able to make in such a short time. You make me very proud!
Parents of Intermediate A Singers: Please remember that all singers MUST sign in at Parish Hall with Sandra and Esther before going to class in the choir room with Matthew and Simon – otherwise, they will be marked LATE or ABSENT!!!

Lovely work sight-singing O, How Lovely, and performing a brief melodic dictation. This week, singers working out of Book 1 should complete pages 25-28, and singers working out of Book 2 should complete pages 13-14. Please complete and give to Simon first thing when you arrive next Thursday. Please do your homework, and if you do not understand it, ASK MATTHEW!
Excellent work reading and performing with the Halloween Candy rhythms! You then split up into small groups and worked on sight-singing in F major. I was so impressed with those of you who performed your canon for the class, and we will continue focusing on this in the coming weeks. This week, singers working out of Book 3 should complete pages 13-14. Please complete and give to Simon first thing when you arrive next Thursday. Please do your homework, and if you do not understand it, ASK ME!
