Hello Families,
 
Great reheasal last week according to MR. BEEKSMA! I am very sorry I was unable to be there last Monday but I heard you had a produtive rehearsal!!!!
We are working towards two performances and they are coming up quick! SUNDAY is our church service at St. Charles and ONE rehearsals before THE FOUR TOPS! Very exciting!
 
Homework for this week:
Memorize the music for the church service!  Pieces are Shine on Me, When I Close My Eyes, and Ubi Caritas.  Make sure you are not breathing in the middle of a phrase, sing with good vowels and head voice.  Also practice with the shape of the line like we do in rehearsals :)
*** FOUR TOPS music needs to be memorized quickly so please practice with your scores with the videos below!!!
