Rehearsal Monday 17th June

Hi all,

Thanks for a really productive rehearsal on Friday.  Hard work, but we covered a lot of ground.

For Monday, we’ll concentrate on  the tunes below – some we didn’t get around to in Friday’s session – others need a bit of finessing.

Please read the notes against each tune, and put in a little practice time as necessary to help us produce a good result on Saturday.

Thanks, Jem

p.s. – Jackie’s MIDI file for Londonderry Air should be on the website soon – under Songs of the British Isles part 1.

 

Rehearsal List – Monday 17th

I’ve got a Gal in Kalamazoo

– Tenors need to work on rhythm timing – section L, altos on playing section M confidently, all to play quietly with moderate swells

Amazing Grace (Songs of the British Isles)

– Generally ok, just need to run through for completeness

I Feel Good

– Tenors need to be confident when they are leading – to eliminate hesitancy

Lemon Meringue

– Altos and Tenors – please practice bar 49 onwards (after the quiet phrasing to ensure you play at the correct speed and don’t slow down.

Little Brown Jug

– Run through for completeness, and to check that everyone understands how the repeat works at the end.

Don’t get around much Anymore

– Check that those playing lead phrases are confident and on time – especially at rehearsal mark ‘C’
