Peace On Earth
If you would like to audition for a solo part in this song this is the part you should practice with. Everyone will sing Silent Night, but the soloists will sing the Peace on Earth part.
This is the round that we learned today in rehearsal. I sang it through two times. We will probably have to add the A part on at the end to have it sound complete in our performance, but for now please just listen and sing along with the song itself.
This is just the short part we learned in rehearsal today. Practice it and get it stuck in your head! ;-)
Celebrate the Season
This is a link to J.W. Pepper, which is a site that sells music. You can click on "listen" and practice with the singers and it WILL NOT CHARGE you. That's only if you are buying the music--you can listen as many times as you want for free! The only catch is that the singers are adults, but it will still be good practice for now.
The First Snow
Below is the J.W. Pepper link as well as PARTS that are me singing. They aren't great and I will re-record them, but they are a decent start. Remember, if you are in the two FRONT lines in rehearsal (after we switch) you are PART 1 (mostly higher). If you are in the BACK two lines (after we switch) you are PART 2 (mostly a little lower). Happy Singing!!
These are the parts we started working on in rehearsal this week. Remember, the two rows closest to the screen are Part 1 and the two rows closest to the xylophones are Part 2 (remember, our regular rows 2 & 3 switched places!). Practice your part until you feel pretty secure with it and then if you like go to the Hot Chocolate link and sing your part with the large group. Remember, that is a difficult task, so be sure you REALLY know your part by itself first.
This is also a link to J.W. Pepper. Please just listen and get it in your head (WARNING: it will get stuck there! :-). Choose to listen to the "Two Part" selection if you can, but any will do!
You can sing along with me for practice. It starts with Snowflakes...watch that second half! :-) Thing about those vowel sounds, too...
Below is a YouTube video of another choir singing Winter Fantasy. Listen for their sound--are they yelling? Do their voices sound forced? Are they thinking about proper posture, vowel formation and using a light head voice? Listen for these things first before you start singing along.
