Hello! The plan for this rehearsal is to sing through the following:
And So It Goes
We will also continue with Pick a Bale of Cotton, which we're learning by ear.
Rehearsal tracks are available on the website; the bit we have already done is "First Part" and the bit I want to do in this rehearsal is "Second Part", if you want to get ahead.
|13-06-2023 7:15 pm
The plan for this rehearsal is below:
* finish Pick a Bale of Cotton by learning the last section (do listen to this online; the tracks are split into sections, but there is also a full version)
* perfect Tebe Poem, which is sounding gorgeous
* sing through And So It Goes
* aim to finish I Love My Love if we can do that as well
|20-06-2023 7:15 pm
In this final rehearsal, we will run through:
And So It Goes
I Love My Love
Pick a Bale of Cotton
with a view to having these ready for a little informal showcasing at the get-together on July 11th.
Please check rehearsal tracks folders for updates. I Love My Love now has rehearsal tracks, and Pick a Bale of Cotton now has the pdf.
