Another excellent rehearsal! We made great progress throughout the night. Definition of Beauty was a worry for me, but we are going to be wonderful. I so appreciate the work that people do in preparation for rehearsals. It makes all the difference!
A few notes…
Definition of Beauty I
- Sop 1 m 17. It will be easier to find the E if you realize that it is a harmony part to the Soprano 2 melody. It is a 3rd above.
- Now it is time to look at dynamics, etc.
Nootka Paddle Song
- Please review breaths throughout the section.
maggie and milly…
- “leggiero” means “lightly.” I also take it as dance-like. Start working toward this idea.
- Also, think about the feeling of each part of the poem. This will help us to sing it expressively.
Ain’a That Good News
- Circle all the z sounds and make sure you know where they should go rhythmically
- Tenors m 17 and following: make sure you are singing the correct rhythm
