Week: 03/01/2010 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Announcements: We got our concert behind us and so now it is forward we go; hopefully without further snow to impede our progress! We are looking ahead to our May 10th Charger Chorus/Life Music Concert to be held at 7:00 in the auditorium. In addition, the chorus is working on music for Tom Sawyer, our junior high musical.
Repertoire: We are working on "We Go Together" (our Because its Good Music selection). We will do an analysis of "Praise the Lord, Alleluia", (our Classical selection) and begin learning it.
The girls' piece and the boys' piece have yet to be determined. Nwzr week we will begin on our African piece Furaha!
Voice Skills/Reading Skills:We continue to practice reading rhythms, and sing key of C exercises.Our main voice skills emphasis is on energized phrasing and the concept of resonance.
Students seeking extra credit: They may choose a topic from our "one paragraph/one poster" project to do on their own.
History/Culture/Other Disciplines: This week students will each choose a partner for our one paragraph/one poster projects.Each song that we sang for our pops concert and will sing for our spring concert will be listed with six ideas for study/research/discovery about culture, history, background, or relevant related topics for students to learn. The students will be required to prepare at least one paragraph and an accompanying small poster. These will be displayed at our spring concert.
