will be a small recital at the AngelSong studio for family and friends of students on November 18. The spring concert will
be held in a larger facility, open to the public.
Middle/High School Choir: We
have begun taking names of interested students who would like to participate in a choir for older students. We’ll work
out the schedule according the needs of the majority of participants. If any students would like to sing the role of an older
sibling in the “So Long, Farewell” scene this semester, please contact Karen.
Auditions: Will not
be necessary for our beginning season, however, we are seeking singers who can carry a tune or match pitches. It is the director’s
vision that after training for a semester or two, this group will become a “select” choir capable of performing
in a variety of styles and languages.
Contact information: For
questions about the Metro Children’s Show Choir, directions to the studio, or to sign up, please call Karen Bernard

Vocal warm-up exercises
Practice performance songs # 1 &
Practice songs #3 & 4
Depending on time, we will alternate
the following activities:
Music movement to live classical piano
music, and other styles to taped music
Practice songs #5 & 6
Listening to quality vocal music (while
doing a seated fine arts activity)
Music circle: Seasonal or multi-cultural
songs, singing games, or rhythm instrument time
Occasionally, if time allows, we may
do a music craft, sound experiment, music theory game, or read a short story about our music.
The song practice time will also be used
to practice sight-reading skills, learn music terminology, discuss rhythms, intervals, and background of each song.
Tentative performance repertoire
for Fall 2004: (not including circle time songs and music listening selections)
Broadway Happiness is (You’re a Good Man, Charley Brown)
So Long, Farewell (Sound of Music)
It’s Only a Paper Moon
Classical Breathing with Beethoven
Sacred I Know the Lord has Laid His Hands on Me
Folk Manx Lullaby
We will have practice tapes and music
to send home with your child on September 23. Please make sure he or she listens/sings along once a day, as our goal is to
memorize all pieces. Children should keep a folder containing all music and hand-outs and bring it to each session. The November
18th recital will be rather informal – no special attire or costumes are needed. Eventually, we’ll have MCSC concert
attire, but for now, please have students wear nice, casual or even church-type attire for recitals.
