FEBRUARY 3rd, 2020

Great rehearsals this week (Saturday & Monday) and it was really good having Caroline with us Monday. I think that will be our plan for the next two rehearsals, so I’ve added it in red to the list below.


MY DISCIPLINE:

For me, I’m working all this music 3 times a day (morning, afternoon, evening) for about 15+ minutes. I go one time through with one of the YouTube Videos (with my music until memorized) and utilizing the choral-ography as much as possible. (I think I’ve got 7 or so tabs with YouTubes in my Chrome- I just do one after another!)

I don’t know what your discipline is (this one may not work for you), but if you don’t have a daily discipline, develop one where you can spend some time with the music. Thanks!


Rehearsals through “Stuff & Nonsense” (Sunday, Feb. 23rd):

SATB

Monday, February 10, 6:00-6:45 pm

Monday, February 17, 8:30-9:00 pm


SSAA

Monday, February 10, 8:30-9:00 pm

Monday, February 17, 6:00-6:45 pm


TO DO LIST (SATB):

The Argument

o Memorize- memorize all!

o There are tracks on this in Chorus Connection. To get to all the tracks in Chorus Connection:

§ Go to the Member Portal https://www.coppellcommunitychorale.com/member-portal

§ Enter password Broadway101

§ Click on the arrow for Rehearsal Tracks

§ Click on Chorus Connection (note login info if this is your first time)

§ Click under Music in the top left menu panel for both SATB and SSAA Variations

o Watch the Vancouver Youth Choir Video for how we will do “choral-ography” with looks, crossed arms, gestures, etc.). Feel free to make notes on your own- that will save us time on Saturday (this is also good to practice with once memorized!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8vxLHDDeI0

Memorizel. Here is a YouTube I like (I don’t think I’ll worry about the choral-ography just yet- just claps and snaps! LOL!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUKyWJ7DSg0&list=RDNUKyWJ7DSg0&start_radio=1


TO DO LIST (SSAA):
