2021 Rehearsals Week 1

Since our abrupt lockdown we are starting the year with a virtual rehearsal.   We have some warm up materials, a round to sing along with and then some of the more familiar pieces from the May Concert.

** Please note that during this rehearsal we are not recording! **

We are just singing along this week, no need to send anything in unless it is a photo of you in action! 🙂  Please work through the videos as you scroll down the page and email Annie if you have any technical issues.

Eva-Marie’s Notes

For our first week back we are looking over pieces which we have sung in previous concerts and are carrying forward into 2021. We’ll start with Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus, Franck’s Panis Angelicus, and Stainer’s God So Loved the World. These were pieces we already had a go at in last year’s virtual choir, so why not spend your usual Monday rehearsal time singing along to these again and reminding yourself of the little corners in the music. PDFs of the sheet music are available below as well as vocal warm up videos and our favourite Zing-a-zing-a-zing round. Make yourself comfy and have a good old sing at home!

For those of you who were part of our virtual choir last year, there’s no need to send in recordings of yourself singing at this stage, but any pics of you rehearsing at home would be great to see! It’s always wonderful to think that though we are apart we are united in song and all raising our voices together at our usual rehearsal time. Please send your pics through to Annie so we can include them in next week’s Stay Tuned.

Warm ups

This week we have some warm ups to start us off.

Zinga-Zinga-Zing round

Now we will be revising the Zinga Zinga Zing round.  The sheet music is provided as well as the audio track to prepare.  Then there is a practice video, and when you are confident, a full round to sing along to.
