Sunday : Concert ! 

Dear all, 
Thank you again for all the effort you made on Monday evening!  I know it was a lot of work, but I’m sure you will be proud of yourself on Sunday, during the concert !

For Sunday, the meeting is at 12h30, at the Church : please arrive in time, dressed !

We will need to do a very good warm up, and we’ll work on organization things (order of the pieces, who is going where, etc…)

By then, look again very carefully at the scores, and above all at the different texts, depending on the couplets ! For the Children’s Choir, the ones that most need work are Jouluppuu (second half), and Ding dong merrily in high. 
Have a great few days and see you all on Sunday!

Uniforms delivery / Remise des uniformes : November 23

Dear all, 

Tomorrow, Elise Joubert, who made the uniforms, will be with us at the end of the rehearsal with the Children’s Choir (just before the Youth Choir will rehearse alone), around 6:45/7pm. 

All the new choristers will receive their uniform and will have some recommendations for the cleaning. 

For the payment, please don’t give us any money tomorrow

The conservatory will be in charge of it and will contact you to make the payment directly to them : it will be added to your account as it can be used for taxes.

Have a wonderful day!

Next Rehearsal : last one before our concert! (November, the 23!)

Dear all,

Thank you very much for all the efforts done last Monday !

Next week : last rehearsal before concert…already !

For that occasion, as it’s written in your calendar, the Children’s Choir is asked to stay until 7pm.

Of course, for next rehearsal, all the music has to be known by heart, so please look at them all, but you will find below the parts that needs more attention, with first the music that really needs to be looked at, carefully :

– Joulupuu on rakennettu : learn very well the second part, from “Kuusen pienet” to “sulosti” : it’s the page number 5.

– Corpulent Camel : learn the second couplet (from “Lemon or cream…”)

– Cranberries Chestnuts : particularly from “Advent pretzels” to the end. 

– Des chansons comiques : look at the different texts depending on the couplets, memorize the order. 

– You’re a mean one : 

          ~ Look at the text in the different couplets

          ~ Second voice (“oo”s) and the “yuck ! Full of gunk” for the altos

 

Bora Maisha : memorize the order

Zum Gali Gali : memorize the order

Ding dong merrily on high : From measure 62 to the end, when it’s slower.

 
Have a wonderful week-end and see you next Monday !
