Rehearsal Notes and Audio 23.02.23

We are really starting to sound like a proper choir! Amazing after just three rehearsals. I’m delighted with our sound.

Lovely, lovely rehearsal everyone. Thank you. It feels welcoming and bright and sounds lovely.

We worked again on California Dreamin – thank you to the back row of greens who grudgingly agreed to sing blue on this one! The lower harmonies are hard but we are definitely getting there.

We had a sing through of Everybody’s Changing and then a romp through Viva La Vida. Lovely harmony remembers on Viva.

During the focussed time, we worked on A Million Dreams (harder for the lower parts) and Chasing Cars which we’d already explored a bit at the last session. Then we brought them together in Part 4. We’ll work more on both of these as A Million Dreams isn’t finished – Chasing Cars already sounding brilliant.

We worked on the harmonies for Everybody’s Changing – I’ll get them up on the shared drive for you today. Lovely 3 part arrangement and although I’ve sung this song before, I’ve not heard it in this arranged form and I thought it was marvellous. Thank you! We just worked on the chorus in 3 part harmony. There a lovely moment I’ve marked on the audio for Part 4 which is the acapella bit we did – if you only listen to one bit of these audio files – make it that bit!

We sang A Little Respect which really has some fabulous energy about it and finished with a quick whip through Waterloo.

Next session I’ll be working with you on dynamics (Loud and soft) and how you can control this effectively.
