The Leagues 1st Run-through

Next week we’re going to meet at a different place and a different day.  Chris Preston is hosting a run-through this  Friday the 28th at 7:00 pm.

His address is – 144 Caldwell Rd. Dartmouth
Take Portland St. to Caldwell Rd. and turn right. 

Chris' Ph# if you get lost. – 902-462-6993.

Focus will be on the two songs:
Railroad Rag
Don't be a baby, baby

You should be off-paper for at least some of the songs for the quartet focus.
Here is a google view of Chris' location.

League members singing in octet style before breaking into Quartets

Definitely a talented group getting the feel for the song we are working on. Arranged right after into quartet formation to work on blending and presentation. Disregarding the book shown in the picture only because Galen just started last Thursday, the quarteters must know the music to get the maximum benefit. I hope I was not the only one that enjoyed myself.

Quarteters Parts

Good afternoon everyone,

The league is for Quartet singers who like singing tough arrangements and who are not afraid to push themselves to learn words and notes to five fantastic arrangements. We will hold a friendly competition at the end of our package in the late October, early November time-frame. There will be some great singing and laughs. Preparation will be the key and all league singers are expected to be one hundred percent of their notes and words learned by contest.

It is a unique experience. Men who want to demonstrate that they have the ability, willingness and drive to learn five songs word and note perfect. That requires discipline.

Here is the link to the music. Only download the music that applies to your respective part. To download the music, right-click over the song and select "Save Link As..."
