Preliminaries

Tonight we play for the judges in the Birdsong panyard. We’ve been working to get the music memorized,with the right feel, and up to speed. Andy Narell is explaining his composition to us this morning, breaking it down with theory. This is an unusual aspect that the Birdsong program provides, but a helpful one to understand the music better and for those interested in writing music.

There is much collaborative learning occurring at this point as well as individual practice. We check parts with each other to make sure we have the detail, but we also have sectional rehearsal to ensure everyone is playing uniform parts. More to come . . .
