signature 2

Notes:

  • We received and sang through four new pieces:  Forever Country, Heartache Tonight, It's Still Rock and Roll to me and Light of a Clear Blue Morning.
  • In Forever Rock and Roll - Three songs are interwoven throughout the piece.  Your voice part may be singing something different than other voce parts.  Also, at measure 21, "strong ballad", the tempo slows a bit.
  • In Heartache Tonight - watch your roadmap.  There is a repeat and a coda.
  • In It's Still Rock and Roll to Me, watch the words and rhythms.  
  • in Light of a Clear Blue Morning, my post-it note reads "big time roadmap".  There is a huge female solo, a small group SSA section, and parts start out out on two lines and eventually end up on 4 lines as we most commonly see in SATB arrangements.  Also, page 9 repeats 8 times with different voices and parts coming in at different times.  Bill is bringing in another arrangement of this piece for us to try as well.  Thanks Bill!
  • Please note that our concert has been tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 5th, dress rehearsal on May 4th.  We are awaiting confirmation of venue.
