10/1/2014 Rehearsal Notes

by Director on October 7, 2014

Words – Words – Words – - ! ! ! !

 

Please make sue you are reading all of your scores and starting to be VERY familiar with words – - – - In addition with the page turns   – or print out the copy of Sleigh Ride that Jay e.mailed that will “string along” rather involve page turns.

 

Throw Open Your Shutters – Watch repeat signs on pages 6 {to the beginning without pick up measures} page 7 – each line repeats – Page 8 has a repeat – and page 10 – 11.

Also watch Tenor divisi on pages 10/11

 

Basic observations  - – LIGHT  - -QUICK – ! ! ! ! ! !   Lots of good diction with short quick words  - – -

 

Baby it’s Cold Outside – Don’t forget the eighth notes “swing” –  — – -  eighth notes patterns are done like a triplet fashion  - – - -

All voice parts need to hold the end of phrases  - -example  measure 11 top of page 4   – - – measures 27/28 top of page 6 etc -

 

Carol of Winter Peace – We added a grand pause or “cut-off” on pate 11  at the hold in 102.

 

We put additional cut offs in measures 103 and 4 as well – large crescendo on last word “peace”  - – pp <MF

 

Bass/Baritone rehearsal at 6:30
