Take Note! attended Region 15's Quartet Day and got to hang out with Queen Corinna Garriock from Martini, who will be the guests on our show on November 17! They each tried on her crown - perfect fit every time!
How lucky are we to have such supportive friends and family who came out to be our test audience as we prepare for contest! We hope they had as much fun as we did. And what better way to end the afternoon than by having all our Sweet Adelines sisters join us on the risers to sing 'How we Sang Today'.
Resonance, vowel tunnel, diphthong, breath control, phrasing, flamboyance, and consistency are but some of the keywords we took away from our retreat! We were so excited and inspired by our time with Betty Clipman who led us to sing at another level. Now to bring those skills and energy back to rehearsal each week and on to competition! <!--break--> And in between our educational sessions, we had time for fun fotos, socializing and even to discover what color our brains were.
We had an inspirational day of coaching with Jim last Saturday! It was so exciting to work together to tighten chords and choreo and polish our repertoire.
