This is a NEW MUSIC week! There are four songs added to the repertoire, 1 for Filippiniana and 3 for the All Choirs concert on November 26th.
The goal is to listen to each piece and sight read through each of them. You need to get an idea of the scope and shape of each piece, and how difficult each one will be to learn. A few of these are challenging, but some of the most fun pieces I’ve conducted in the past.
Please take the time to listen to each link. In addition to working on the new music, we will continue to go through the sight reading examples to help you develop your skills as exemplary musicians.
Filippiniana song – Da Coconut Nut – crazy video here
Hope is the Thing With Feathers – poem by Emily Dickenson – good performance here
How Can I Keep From Singing? – one of my personal favorites
Feelin’ Groovy – this is a maybe, but here’s the Simon and Garfunkle version
