Announcements: Our student committee has selected some Pop music for us to consider for our next concert. In the meantime we are going to sing some Christmas music including Still, Still, Still, and Carol of the Drum, Deck the Halls, and Silent Night.
Voice Skills: Our main goals this quarter have been producing the best tone we can by using good breath energy, posture, and vowels. we strive to listen and work with chord singing and intervals so we create a good sound.
Reading Skills: This young choir doesn't mind sight reading. We continue with our exercises in both melody and rhythms. We are including reading Deck the Halls in 4 parts and 3 new rounds : Winter's Coming Quickly, Benji Met a Bear, I Love the Mountains
Music Analysis Skills: We will be analyzing Wade in the Water, a spiritual for our next concert, for rhythms, harmony, form and key (scale structure). We will do a quick overview of Carol of the Drum.
