The Defining Moment

·      All parts need to be sung upbeat and energetic. Tempo will be about 163.

·      Attention Sopranos: Page 12 & 13 is written SSAB. Both soprano parts take turns at being higher. Please familiarize yourself with both parts. You will be divided depending on where you stand on the risers.

·      Call for a soloist: Page 14-15 One soprano or alto (who can sing in soprano range) or a small group of matching voices that can sing upbeat and energetic to complement the style of song.

·      Listen to "The Defining Moment" by Pinkzebra on youtube (Starting at 3:33): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_mDOLvZVpo

 

Pineywood Mountain

·      All parts need to be sung brightly and enunciated!

·      Attention Baritones: Pages 9-11 the baritone part is split. The melody is the higher part. Assuming the melody can still be heard, “some” guys can take the lower notes to create harmony.

·      Listen to Pineywood Mountain on Paul Zimmerman’s site on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhQ06PXB35umRO8F6I8FyvuAOfPysPjm9

You’ll Be Back

·      Attention Altos:  Measure 61 & 62 altos sing stems down notes.

·      Call for Soloists: There is a baritone solo at the beginning sung by the King (or Queen) of England.  This solo can be adapted for a female voice by taking it up an octave and changing the last word.
