Hello Elgin Encores,
Happy Thanksgiving! Last week we received Oceanscapes and made headway with a few other pieces as well. Looking forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday.
- Rehearsal Order and Recordings
-We will set up on the Stage this Tuesday.
-Bring $2 contributions for snacks; can be deposited at the break in the staff room.
Now that things are underway, LISTEN to the recordings (linked at the bottom)!
Take some time out of your practice schedule to listen. You may wish to have your scores and a pencil at hand, but it’s also good just to gain an appreciation of the music and what musical decisions others have made.
Benefits of listening to the recordings:
-motivation to play!
-an idea on how your part’s rhythms go.
-models for musical decisions (little crescendos, or vibrato)
-knowing who plays when you are/have rests.
