Rehearsal Notes and Audio from 27.10.21

NHSBT Zoom rehearsal 27.10.21

How lovely to see you all today and get our day off to the best start!

We sang ‘Moves like Jagger’ with added Kari-ography – fabulous energy!

We had a go with ‘Chasing Cars’ as this is our recording project. So far there are no submissions but we chatted today and agreed to keep the deadline and see how we get on. SATURDAY MIDNIGHT PLEASE! You can sing as many parts as you like!!! Go mad! Do them all!!!

‘Heaven is a place on Earth’ what a cracking song! Loved the energy with this one too.

‘Fix You’ was an emotional one today – well done for getting through it. If it didn’t tug at your heartstrings quite enough, check out the video we made with the ICU Liberty SIngers earlier this year….

We are still fundraising for ICU staff if anyone feels they’d like to contribute or share amongst their contacts.

We quickly lifted the mood with ‘Mr Brightside’ and ‘Waterloo’.

I’m plotting an enormous recording project for all Liberty SIngers. Our next session will start the process of learning ‘2000 Miles’ which I plan to create a virtual recording with. It will include you, The ICU Liberty SIngers, The Skincredible Liberty Singers, The Hillarys Liberty Singers and The West Bridgford Liberty Singers. This could be 200 voices all together. I can’t wait!!!!

Rehearsal Plan Wednesday 27th October 9.30am

Let’s brighten up the day with some joy!!!

We’ll start with ‘Moves like Jagger’ as this went down so well last time!

We’ll have a sing through of ‘Chasing Cars’ as this is what I’m asking you to record! Deadline is Saturday 30th October so if you’ve any questions…. now is the time.

Let’s go 80s old school with ‘Heaven is a place on Earth’

Let’s calm things a little with ‘Fix you’

Check out the audio at 32 minutes!!! Happy Birthday Victoria!!!

Lovely to see you all tonight everyone xxxx Here’s what we got up to.

We did the Mika Grace Kelly Harmony Challenge which was…. hilarious!

‘Chasing Cars’ – a really brief whip through the harmonies but lots of chat about the articulation and not holding on to the letter ssssss in places. This is the recording project and the conducting videos are already up on the website with the folders to save your audio files to!

‘With or without you’ – we worked on the harmony from ‘my hands are tied’ – there’s some singing octaves apart – watch out reds, it’s quite high! It’s a really lovely version of the song – hope you liked it.

‘Fix You’ beautiful song. Love it. We just had a sing through of this tonight.

‘Eternal Flame’ again another sing through …..

‘Waterloo’ we’d learned the low harmony for this last times sang along to the 2 part version

Here’s what we liked….

I was particularly impressed with the pets who joined us tonight. Thank you Saffron (the dog), Bjorn (the cat) and Rosie (the cat) who apparently taps at the window to be let in when Helen is singing!! How cute!

We also chatted about having some more upbeat songs for the next session which is next Wednesday in the morning x I’ll find some Liberty Bangers for you.
