Thank you for coming to rehearsal on a snowy Valentine’s Day!
Essential Elements: We did line 53 Aura Lee (also known as Love me Tender) and Line 77 Sakura, Sakura
In the Wake of Spring: We got all the way through! We clapped from measure 30 in sections to see which sections play together and then clapped together. Don’t be afraid to clap sections in your own section. I also asked what cues sections want (you should still count the bars, so you are not surprised when cued!).
Celtic Air and Dance: We went over the speed road map and found sections that should be cued. We did 57 to the end and paid close attention to the last 2 notes. We also worked on the transition and the beginning from a the slower tempo to a less slow tempo.
24 or 6 to 4: We played ourselves out with the closing phrase.
Next Week Plan:
EE: 119, 121, 123, 126,128
Concentrate on Visions of Aranjuez because we did not do it this week. (especially 55 to end)
