Rehearsal Notes –  - – - -

 

 

Gonna Build a Mountain – watch rests – third measure “from a little hill”  -then 2 beat rest –  - following letter B – the word HOPE gets one beat then rest – rest – rest -

Skye Boat – the lines are split at Tenor I on top line Tenor II on the true “tenor” line – then Bari/Bass on the bottom line

 

Watch “hair pin” crescendo and diminuendo  - – — – - lots of breath control on long notes  like top of page 4 “Say, could that lad be I”  - — I has 6 beats with a crescendo  - -LOTS of breath control

 

Whale of a Tale – Over all nice work  - – - – - –  BASS big crescendo and have fun with the last 5 measures ! ! ! !

 

Aura Lee – Breath control ! ! !    Also last measure of second system should have a crescendo into the first loud Aura Lee – then much quieter on the second Aura Lee –  - also hair pin crescendo in the last two measures is realized on the word “IN” -

 

Stars I Shall Find – Please connec tthe first phrase  - there will be restand sure  - – -also a reign of restserene  - – —  measure 15

Breath control and hair pin crescendi are very important to this composition as well -

Remember the “con moto”  - – with motion section at top of page 4  - -a little different sense of “purpose” or clarity if you will  - -the words should help the listener feel that movement.

 

PLEASE listen to the CR’s for Jersey Boys  - -we will begin work on that this week  - -

 

See you all on Wednesday -

 

THANKS !
