Rehearsal Schedule 4-9

Dear Singers

We have progressed to fine detail work. It is great to be able to spend time perfecting our performance. Thanks so much for all your hard work.


It is so helpful to write in at least the main beats for many of our songs. The ironically (or maybe not) the most problems with this occur when you are counting rests or long notes. 6/8-type rhythms can be the hardest to count. Remember that the dotted quarter gets the beat. Pieces that might need counting attention are, in the order of most challenging (I’m guessing–you might disagree):
Definition of Beauty
The Boy Who Picked Up His Feet To Fly
Nootka Paddle Song
maggie and milly
Of Crows and Clusters
Ain’a That Good News
David’s Lamentation

Definition of Beauty Rehearsal(s)
We will begin our rehearsal on Tuesday with Definition of Beauty. Men should arrive by 7:45 but, as usual, may arrive at 7 if you would like to participate in warmups. We will work on all four pieces.

If you would like extra rehearsal on these pieces, Ellie Murray will work on the spots you need. That rehearsal will begin at 6:15 in the library. To go to that room walk along the corridor next to Wesley Hall (across the grass from the sanctuary) and enter the double doors. “Your destination will be on the left.”

Seating Chart

The seating chart is attached to this email. Be sure to arrive early to find your seat. BTW, you can orient yourself when looking at the chart by noticing where Mikiko and myself are located.

See you Tuesday!
