Dear BUF Chalice Choir,
Because we want our choir members to feel loved, competent and comfortable, we are implementing various schemes for skill building and team building.
Last night we started setting up a music reading buddy system. This is a work in progress. As people settle in, we may need to fill in and reshuffle a bit, but please feel to start learning the songs together now, even outside of rehearsal, if you like.
This Saturday, September 23, I will be leading an “Introduction to Choir Singing” group session from 9:30-10:30am at BUF. Then, from 10:30-11am, I’ll follow up with the attendees for short, user-friendly, one-on-one vocal explorations, if wanted. No sign up required, just come.
Starting Saturday, September 30, Ruth Ann Hanlin will be leading her much-beloved sectionals at BUF to help people learn their parts for upcoming choir performances. Her schedule:
Again, no sign up required, just come.
Ruth Ann will start with the song “This Little Babe” from Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols.”
She plans to offer further Saturday sectionals on October 14 and 21 plus November 4, 11 and 18.
Don’t forget that you can practice with Al Heezen’s on-line rehearsal tracks 24 hours a day by going to bufchoir.org.
There, now don’t you feel loved?
