There's nothing quite like learning harmonies! No one seems to be able to find their pitch at first and everything seems to be clashing...but when it all comes together, well, it's like magic! Today we had our first chorus rehearsal and after singing through the songs a few times, we began learning the harmonies. It took us a few tries to get our voices to blend and to get everyone to hold their line, but by the end of rehearsal, things were starting to sound like they were supposed to! Although learning harmonies can be challenging, they certainly do add a little something extra to a song and make it sound more full and complete! WE CAN'T WAIT FOR YOU TO HEAR THEM IN MAY!!
That pretty much sums up our rehearsal for today! There's no rehearsals this upcoming week because everyone is studying hard for those last midterms before reading break, but we meet again next
Sunday to hopefully do some DANCING! yay!
Have a good Valentine's Day Everybody! May it be filled with heart-shaped cookies, strawberry-cream-filled chocolates, roses and lots of hugs and kisses! If you're looking for some musical love songs to sing to that special someone (and we all know you secretly are!), "All I Ask of You" from Phantom of the Opera, "As Long as you're Mine" from Wicked and "Tonight" from West Side Story are some good ones!
