Rehearsal Planning 28.09.22 – 8-9pm

It’s our evening session this time! Hope lots of you can come along and share the singing joy.

We’ll have a warm up and get ourselves in the mood for singing.

I’d like to start with ‘Angels’ – we’ve talked about learning the harmonies and it has scored well in the polls.

While we are in this gentle mood, we’ll have one last sing through of the Rose – this is to be recorded by Saturday pretty please!!!

I’d like to have a go at Goodbye Yellow Brick Road – it’s become a massive favourite with my singers and you might just love it.

We’ll have a break, a chat etc. Then, let’s try this…

And back again over this

And we’ll finish on something else new….

Rehearsal Planning 21.09.22. 9-9.30am

An uplifting start to the day!

We’ll warm up. I’ll also do some exercises with you to help with the recording of ‘the Rose’ in terms of emotion, expression and diction.

We’ll learn the next bit of ‘The Rose’

I’d love to have a sing through of ‘Don’t Shut Me Down’ from the new ABBA album with you to see what you think.

Then let’s stay with the Don’ts for the next two!

And……

See you on Wednesday!

Welcome Back Rehearsal! 07.09.22 8-9pm

We are back with an evening session this week! Yippee!!

Let’s get cracking with some new songs as well as some old favourites! I’ve looked through some of the suggestions made in the WhatsApp group….

I’d very much like to have a good crack at The Rose as this is our next recording project with the ICU Liberty Singers.

I’m interested to see what you make of this one…..

And we said we’d have a go at this!

We’ll have a little bit of feel good singing too..

And finish singing along to one of our last recordings.

See you on Wednesday! If you can bring anyone along, please so! The more joy we can share the better it gets x

Lovely end of term! Thanks for coming.

We listened to some Carpenters and agreed to work on this next time (September)

We’ve Only Just Begun

I’ve also asked if you could pop a sentence to me on WhatsApp as we try to spread the choir joy recruiting new singers and luring back those who have fallen by the wayside! Just a reason to join the choir please so that I can make it into a cave slide and we can share far and wide.

Thank you all. I’ve really enjoyed reconnecting with you this season and look forward to more!
