Vocal Jazz Ensemble Updates

Vocal Jazz Ensemble:
Happy New Year To Each Of You!!

We have rehearsal THIS Tuesday evening, Rhythm Section 5:30-6:30, Full Ensemble 6:30-8:00
(PLEASE group text and send reminders!)

We are now entering a pivotal month of rehearsals as we prepare for Berklee Saturday (Feb 10)
- PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING!  You should be practicing your parts and solos regularly (daily if possible)
We have a LOT of work ahead of us if we are going to perform at an elite level, I expect each of you to be super focused and prepared in every rehearsal this month.

- Everyone including rhythm section MUST attend all Tuesday evening rehearsals leading up to Berklee:
(1/2, 1/9, 1/16, 1/23, 1/30, 2/6)
Rhythm Section will rehearse 5:30-6:30, Full Ensemble 6:30-8:00pm

- Rhythm Section, please be prepared and have the three Berklee songs learned and ready to rehearse

Soloists need to be chosen: I hope you have been practicing during the break. 
If we don't have strong soloist(s) for Rolling In The Deep it will need to be cut

- Every section should try to schedule weekly sectionals through the month of January
(I'm happy to attend these sectionals if I'm available)

- Clinic with Ned Rosenblatt: January 24, 11:00-12:30 (Full Ensemble)

- BERKLEE FESTIVAL: Saturday February 10 (ALL DAY Event) - More Details Coming Soon

If I need to miss a Tuesday evening rehearsal due to the birth of my child, I will notify you, and you will still be rehearsing with either Mr. Bush, Mrs. Oberoi, or another adult covering.  I will expect you to still rehearse at a professional level.
See you at Tuesday evening rehearsal,
