VOCAL SCORE & COACHING VIDEOS

 

 

PREPARING FOR MAY 18TH REHEARSAL

  • We have updated the vocal score and we’ll ask everyone to print out the new version and bring it in a black binder. Download the updated score below.

 

  • Our rehearsal schedule is based on the expectation that you will come to rehearsal knowing the music. This means that you will need to know the musical score well enough to be able to sing any of the “back-up” vocals (see below).
     
  • Also, you will need to be familiar with all of the instrumental sections that will be choreographed. (see “Choreography” below)
     
  • It is important to know the music well enough to be able to sing it while, at the same time, executing blocking and choreography. Bottom line: nothing else works if the music does not.
     
  • Suggestion: record yourself on your phone to help you practice later!
