No Regular Choir this Summer!

Unless otherwise noted, starting in the fall…

Rehearsals  are in the sanctuary on Thursdays from 5:30-7:15 pm.

Sunday mornings the choir meets at 8:45 am (unless the choir is not singing.)

Regrettably there is still no elevette and won’t be until the fall

SUMMER HAPPENINGS!!!

Maggie Rebmann’s Memorial Service will be on Friday August 16th at 10 AM.

Choir will rehearse for this service on Thursday August 15th from 6:30-8:30 pm

The choir offering will be “Old Irish Blessing”, a favorite of hers.  I will make copies of the music available after August 5th.  In the meantime, here are some practice tracks.

AUGUST 10th

A Harmony Singing Workshop with Ali Burns

Plainfield Friends Meeting House, 203 Martin Meadow Rd., Plainfield, VT

Saturday, August 10, 10:00 a.m. — 4:00 p.m.

Tickets for the event are priced at $25 per person. To register, visit https://forms.gle/qRj7jbmRvfJEhmsB7

 

Fall church year starts on September 8th.   I will be out of town for that service.  I would love if some group of you wished to put something together for that!  I am hoping that we can learn something at the Ali Burns workshop which could be used.  I have passed on information about the theme of the service to John Harrison (at his suggestion) so that something might be included.

Practice Tracks Ticheli’s Earth Song

There are multiple versions available on youtube.  I didn’t put the links here because different people might have different preferences.  The ones that include “Guide voix Sopranos (or alto, etc)” in the title are the only that have a real person singing PLUS the other parts.  The others that I found either do include all parts, with selected voice dominant, but are done on keyboard, or have a real person but only singing the selected part by itself without the other harmonies.  The drawback for the “Guide voix” videos is that it is a male singer and he sings the Soprano and Alto parts an octave down.  So, take your pick!  Just search for Ticheli Earth Song Tenor (or bass, etc..)
