Hello fellow MMC members!

We started our rehearsal tonight by turning in 5 pieces of music: Every Knee Should Bow, Hosanna, Saints Bound for Heaven, This is the Christ, and Gloria.

Announcements: Feedback about Easter Fireside with BYU-I and stake choirs. Makeup Rehearsal tonight. Publicity for Spring Concert 5/14 is needed. Ideas contact Kendra. May 12 rehearsal will be at the Maplewood Community Center. Party at Barb's house after the 5/14 concert-Please RSVP.

The rest of the evening went as follows:

SECTIONALS: SING SING SING measures 1-27. We need to make our notes crisper and sing with accents on notes. SA: BOOGIE WOOGIE BUGLE BOY-reviewed. TB: BRING HIM HOME-reviewed. OKLAHAMA was reviewed and then we added choreography. We practiced the choreography SATB in the primary room.

SATB: SURE ON THIS SHINING NIGHT worked on measure 19. Watch timing and ritard. Also reviewed measures 38-end. GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING. We need to make sure we are using a round, full sound. HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING measures 46-66. Crescendo on held notes. Emphasize "can". Inunciate consonants.

We held our Easter party and enjoyed treats from the tenors and the makeup rehearsal attendees. Thanks to all who brought something:)

Hope these notes help in your practice this week. Happy Easter to all!

See you Thursday:)
