Mystic Chorale | Fall 2018: Small Chorus

Fall 2018: Small Chorus

Singer Info for the Small Chorus

The goal of the Small Chorus is to offer a greater challenge for those who welcome it.  The small chorus for Fall 2018 will perform James Taylor’s “That Lonesome Road”.

Requirements

  • To sing in the small chorus, you must sign up and pay for the Fall season.
  • You must audition for the small chorus by singing a short section of “That Lonesome Road”.
  • Singers must learn the music on their own as there will be no practice audios for this song.
  • You need to attend at least 3 of the 4 Small Chorus rehearsals.
  • You will need to sing in the November concerts.

Audition Schedule

Tuesday, Sept. 11th – auditions with Nick for the small chorus before and after rehearsal, in the sanctuary.

Additionally, singers may audition for the Small Chorus during other solo auditions on Sept. 25 and Oct. 2.

Singers must demonstrate good phrasing, vowels, intonation, and the ability to pick up the music quickly without the use of practice audios.   Singers chosen may end up singing another voice part (i.e. an alto might be asked to sing soprano or tenor).

Rehearsal Schedule

You are expected to be able to sing your entire part, while using the sheet music, by October 9th.

Lyrics

Walk down that lonesome road all by yourself
Don’t turn your head back over your shoulder
And only stop to rest yourself when the silver moon
Is shining high above the trees

If I had stopped to listen once or twice
If I had closed my mouth and opened my eyes
If I had cooled my head and warmed my heart
I’d not be on this road tonight

Carry on

Never mind feeling sorry for yourself
It doesn’t save you from your troubled mind
Walk down that lonesome road all by yourself
Don’t turn your head back over your shoulder
And only stop to rest yourself when the silver moon
Is shining high above the trees
