Tuesday, May 2, 2017—
This is our last rehearsal at Church of the Brethren.
We will do warmups for a light but well supported sound, sustaining the light sound over a wide range.
We will go over all the choruses from The Lark, starting with the “Latin choruses”. We will focus on:
Transitions—and how they will work, both in terms of finding pitches quickly and exact cues
Run each full movement—not necessarily in order—with the countertenor solos included
We will go over all Candide Choruses—in the order they will be performed in the concert. As with the Lark choruses, we will first go over transitions and tricky spots—then run full choruses:
“Best of All Possible”
“Life is Happiness”
“It Must be So”
“Make Our Garden Grow”
