New York, New York! [10 Jan 2004|12:53am]

Woot Woot!

My showchoir, the WescovAires, has finally gotten all of our music for competition in New York.
For those of you who don't know, my showchoir is going to New York to compete April 14-17. Not only are we competeing as a show/swing choir, we're also performing as a jazz and chamber choir. I'm SO excited to go. The only thing is that I have to raise $650 by March 31. That's a LOT of money.

Anyway, here are the songs that we are doing for competiton:

Chamber Set (all acapella):
"El Grillo"
"O Vos Omnes"
and another song in French but I think it's "Mouencuer"

Jazz Set:
"Java Jive"
"Flight of the Bumblebee" (yes the one from Drumline)- Acappella
"Lullabye"- Accapella

Showchoir Set:
"The Joint is Jumpin'"
"On Broadway"
"Fame"

This year, not only do I want to rank Gold again, I want to rank #1 in every category! I seriously believe my choir can do it. I'll post more as it comes along.

Much love,
**Tiff**

YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN IN SHOW CHOIR TOO LONG WHEN...
*you hear songs on the radio and sing them with perfect diction.
*you accidentally call your parent by your director's name.
*the smell of burning hairspray no longer has an effect on you.
*you realize you feel naked without glitter.
*the charter bus is a second home.
*you've shared deodorant with six different people (male and female).
*you can run in heels without looking stupid.
*you download as many songs as you can that are affiliated with a show choir.
*you do facials off stage.
*sleeping in curlers is comfortable.
*you hate how you look without false eyelashes on.
*you can comfortably change out of costume into street clothes in front of the guys, your parents, and the director.
*a guy suggests you put on a little more blush.
*instead of counting down the days until summer, you count down the days until Tour and YES!!!

If you can't tell... I'm a SOPRANO!!!
SOPRANOS ROCK!!! (they rock ur socks, right jiggs?)

Top Ten Reasons...
Stolen from silversolitare

TOP TEN REASONS FOR BEING A SOPRANO.....

10) The rest of the choir exists just to make you look good.

9) You can entertain your friends by breaking their wine glasses.

8) Can you name an opera where the alto got the man?

7) When sopranos want to sing in the shower, they can sing the melody.

6) It's not like you are EVER going to sing the alto part by accident!

5) Great costumes - like the hat with the horns on it!

4) How many world famous altos can you name?

3) When the fat lady sings, she's usually singing soprano.

2) When you get tired of singing the melody - there's always the descant!

1) You can sing along with Michael Jackson.

And... if you're curious...


TOP TEN REASONS FOR BEING AN ALTO......

10) You get really good at singing E flat

9) You get to sing the same note for 12 consecutive measures

8) You don't really need to warm up to sing 12 consecutive bars of E flat

7) If the choir really sucks, it's unlikely the altos will be blamed

6) You have lots of time to chat during soprano solos

5) You get to pretend that you are better than the sopranos, because everybody knows that women who sing soprano just do so because they can't read the music

4) You can sometimes find part time work singing tenor

3) Altos get all the great intervals

2) When the sopranos are holding some outrageously high note at the end of a piece, the altos ALWAYS get the last word.

1) When the altos miss a note, nobody gets hurt


TOP TEN REASONS FOR BEING A TENOR......

10) Tenors get high - without drugs

9) Name a musical where the bass got the girl...

8) You can show the sopranos how it SHOULD be sung

7) Did you ever hear of anyone paying $1000 a ticket to see "The Three Basses" ?

6) Who needs brains when you've got resonance?

5) Tenors never have to waste time looking through the self-improvement section of the bookstore

4) You get to sing along with John Denver singing "High Calypso"

3) When you get really good at falsetto, you can make tons of money doing voice-overs for cartoon characters

2) Gregorian chant was practically invented for tenors. Nobody invented a genre for basses!

1) You can entertain your friends by impersonating Julia Child.


TOP TEN REASONS FOR BEING A BASS......

10) You don't have to tighten your shorts to reach your note

9) You don't have to worry about a woman stealing your job.

8)...or a pre-adolescent boy!

7) Action heroes are always basses. That is, if they ever sang, they would sing bass.

6) You get gread memorable lyrics like "bop, bop, bop, bop"

5) If the singing job doesn't work out, there's always broadcasting.

4) You never need to learn to read the treble clef

3) If you get a cold, so what!

2) For fun, you can sing at the bottom of your range and fool people into thinking there's an earthquake

1) If you belch while you're singing, the audience just thinks it part of the score.

Guys, things are getting way too crazy in our shows. People trying to show-off and upstage others are taking away from our group as a whole. Yea, it's all fine and dandy if you're just trying have fun in a normal setting, but in showchoir, it's about making the group as a whole look good. I HATE to compare this year's group to my freshman year since they are totally different, but this is NOT WescovAires anymore. I'm sorry, but if we go to New York with our set looking crazy and everyone trying to upstage each other, we are not going to do as well as we are hoping to do. I've heard LLLOOOTTTSSS of complaints from parents as well as WescovAires themselves. We really need to pull together as a group because people are trying to help one another and some people just don't want to hear it. I'm not saying that we're not a good group or that we suck, but we could be SO much better if we really concentrated on performing as a solid group and if everyone took comments from others into consideration. People just want to help but some are not taking it as positively as they should. I'm getting really frustrated because some people work there BUTTS off but others don't take this as seriously. Also, we need to go over the basic of showchoir... meaning showmanship and manners.
During a show, we do NOT fix ourselves on stage! It totally looks bad! I see people fixing their clothes, scratching their heads, and wiping their noses on their sleeves WHILE THEY'RE SINGING!! That's totally disgusting. If you absolutely need to fix yourself or wipe your face, do it while you're not facing the audience (ie. during transition scenes, facing the props during a song, etc).
Also, if the people who we are performing for tell us to get food, we do not get food until the car is packed and until everyone we are performing has gotten food. Plus, we shouldn't even be eating before a show. People are paying us to perform and if they want to give us food after, then that's fine but not before. It's rude...
I'm sorry if I sound like a bitch or if it sounds like I'm just complaining but this needs to be brought up to everyone and I hope others feel the same way. I just want us to be our best and be the prestigious, sophisticated group that the community thinks we are.
