Greetings, Intermediate Singers!
Thank you for another very productive rehearsal this evening – it was great to have almost everyone back from their trips and events, and we are in good shape as we make final preparations for our All-Choir Spring Concert on Saturday May 14th. Keep up the good work – continuing studying, listening, and memorizing your songs at home – we only have TWO rehearsals left before our dress rehearsal!
Trivia Question: What is vair?
Recap from this week’s rehearsal:
Action Items for this Week:
Musicianship A and B
Congratulations on completing your exams and your books! Next week, you will be taking a brief sight-singing test with Laney, during your regular musicianship time. This will be only 5 minutes long, and you will be sight-singing something familiar. You can prepare by singing through all the sight-reading examples in your musicianship books. Please also be prepared to identify the key and time signature of the excerpt you are singing, and to sing the diatonic triad in solfege.
Trivia Answer: Vair (from Latin varius “variegated”) is a fur, and a set of patterns in heraldry. It represents a kind of fur common in the Middle Ages. Vair is the second-most common fur in heraldry, after ermine.
