Sunday is the BIG DAY! I am looking forward to spending the day with you, not only because you are going to be outstanding in the recording studio, but because you are wonderful people and I enjoy spending time with you! Below is a reminder of how to practice Four Bridges today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday). You are going to be so proud of yourselves for working so hard on the preparation of this piece, and it is making you better musicians. Keep up the great work.
A review of Sunday’s logistics:
Check out the story of the historic Fantasy Studios. It’s quite remarkable. Below, please find important information about the upcoming event:
Who: Ensemble Singers
When: Sunday, February 4th. Drop off at FCC at 9:00am. Please be on time (or even a few minutes early!) – we are on a tight schedule in the morning. Cantabile will be providing bus transportation to and from the recording session. Pick up at FCC at 5:30pm. (Please be aware that this is Super Bowl Sunday.)
What to bring:
What to wear: Black Cantabile t-shirt, smart jeans, comfy shoes such as sneakers or flats. Singers will be standing for long periods of time.
I need you to understand the importance of PRECISION in this recording. The recording studio does not mask any errors. We must all be 100% accurate in rhythm and pitch. It is vital that you follow the rehearsal plan this week and make room in your schedule for practice every day.
