In sectionals last night we worked on mm.92-end of “My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord.” We also went over O Holy Night in the “Carols of the Night” piece.
In our SATB time, we mapped through Betelehemu. We WILL be memorizing this piece and we started to learn the choreography for it as well. It is similar to the choreography found on the Betelehemu link. We then worked on “Go Tell it On the Mountain.” We had to work through the rhythms again. It is very important for everyone to be practicing their music outside of rehearsal. Next we worked on mm. 1-37 of “For Unto us a Child is Born.” We worked on building intensity when we say “us a child is born.”We also need to remember to cut off on the second beat where the rests are when we say “Unto us…a son is given, etc.” We then ran through “Judah’s Land.” We worked on putting proper crecendo and decrecendos in the proper spots. Next was “True Light.” Erin had solo auditions and we worked on having a deeper sound, and not sounding like a high school glee club 🙂 With our last few minutes we worked with Barb on “Peace Like a River.”
I would like to remind everyone that we still need ushers for our Nov. 11 concert. Please email me (Laura) or call me if you know of someone who can do this for us. Also, our first makeup rehearsal is next week with Barb from 9:00-9:30pm, so if you need to makeup lost time, that would be a good time to do that.
I would also like to thank my “poster people” for being so willing to get the concert posters put up in their buildings. You are awesome! Have a great week!
