24th january 2012 – it’s all about roberta

24 Jan

we’re working on a new version of a classic soul record (with no rapping in sight i promise!). the harmonies are quite close in places and sometimes appear to work against each other….but as you may have worked out by now i am a big fan of clashy notes….especially when the big resolve comes into play! i really enjoyed tonight and thought everyone worked so hard at getting the harmonies down. keep practising you guys because we are sounding better and better every week.

have a little listen to the chorus and verse 1 MP3 demo of the harmonies…..

OAC KILLING ME SOFTLY – all 4 parts

OAC KILLING ME SOFTLY – bass

OAC KILLING ME SOFTLY – lead

OAC KILLING ME SOFTLY – harmony 1

OAC KILLING ME SOFTLY – harmony 2

and here is the sheet music for you too….

hello lovely singers!

i am really looking forward to thursday – and we will carry on where we left off with AIN’T NO SUNSHINE. have a listen to the demo to refresh your memory

OAC AINT NO SUNSHINE MP3

i hope you can join us. if you are thinking of coming for the first time then you will be more than welcome. i promise you, there is no better way to beat the january blues than with a good sing with some lovely people!

so here are the photos from our end of term show back in december. my only regret is that i didn’t take any more – but i had quite a lot of running around to do! the performance was incredible and to think of what we achieved in such a small amount of time.

 

what a beautiful bunch of people! 😉
