Chamber Singers part-learning tracks

You’ll find below part learning tracks for the pieces due for the first part of the semester shown below. I’m asking you to learn about 12 minutes of music for the first concert. Your part is played and sung. Please listen to the track for your part five times:

1st time - mark some timings in so you’ll be able to return to sections of the part-learning track that are the most helpful to you. Also, mark reminders in your score of interpretive things mentiones. Circle your clef for each system if that helps guide your eye.

2nd time - note intervals that surprise you

3rd through 5th times - sing along with the track

If you get to where you can sing it better than my provided track, please work with me to record it and I’ll replace my track with YOU singing it. :-)
