Welcome back! It was wonderful to see each of you on Wednesday, and to spend quality time together making music. As we discussed in rehearsal, the All Choir Concert this Spring is centered around our relationship with the Earth, nature, and our connection with our planet. If you think of any good titles for the concert, please email Elena. 🙂
Action Items and expectations for next Rehearsal, January 11th:
Kusimama (Stand Tall), Jim Papoulis
You will be singing this with Intermediate at the All Choir Concert this Spring.
Earth Songs, David Brunner
You will be singing this with Vocalise at the All Choir Concert this Spring.
Review: Breathing meditation, standing position and a Yoga flow
Continue practicing breathing as follows (5 min a day.) It’s been wonderful to see how many of you list yoga on your practice logs each week! This technique will not only relax and center you but will also greatly improve your ability to sing long sustained phrases.
Mind and body are one continuum, reconnected through breath
Other announcements and reminders:
This semester promises to be another one full of magical music making, and meaningful connection – to ourselves, to each other, to other peoples and cultures, and to the beautiful planet we call home. We’re looking forward to sharing this journey with each of you, and wish you a week full of poetry and beauty.
All our best!
Elena and Jazmine
