Summer is a season for trying new things – camping, waterskiing, CHOIR!
If you’ve wanted to be a part of the adult choir and it’s been a while since you’ve been in a choir, you haven’t had time, or you feel like you’d need some help with music, then Summer Choir is for you!
We will rehearse on Sunday afternoons before the evening service in June and July, and then sing at the 6:00 p.m. worship services. Our goal for this summer is simple – to learn how to read music better.
In Chancel Choir, the men and woman normally divide anywhere from four parts (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) to eight parts (SSAATTBB). This summer, we will sing predominantly three-part music, Soprano, Alto, and Dudes. The men for this chorus will sing mostly in unison so that our focus can truly be on reading, hearing, and understanding the musical line. This will help simplify the aspects of choral singing and help us focus on the goal at hand, which is to improve our music reading.
These rehearsals will be a structured but fun way to learn how to read and sing notes that are on the page. We will give attention to:
- Hearing and discerning musical intervals;
- Learning key signatures and scales; and
- Improving speed in sight reading.
This is a fun and relaxed way to try your hand at choral singing, and it is also an opportunity to get to know some of our amazing music team members!
