Another great day the the St, Mark's CAO!
As you work on creating your librettos, keep in mind the different elements involved
CHORUS - the bigger songs where everyone sings. Particularly good for the moments of high emotion.
ARIA - A solo section or song
DUET - A section for two singers
DIALOGUE - Spoken words
UNDERSCORE - Music that is played under dialogue
MOVEMENT - sections of dance or choreographed movement, with or without music
STAGE DIRECTIONS - markings listed in brackets to tell actions.
And here's a list of everyone's CHORUSES/ARIAS/DUETS
Ms. Moore's Class
Just An Ordinary Day
The Battle (Zombies vs. Vampires)
Mr. Scicluna's Class
Whiny Complaining Song
Mr. Kennedy's Class
Shock and Dismay
We did what we wanted/What did we do?
Ms. Sappong's Class
Funeral for Mr. Louis
Loner, get off the bus!
We're not so bad
FInale: Celebrating Mr. L
So for next week, get those solid one-page librettos ready to go. If ANYONE has musical ideas over the next week, we'll listen and work on them when I'm in solo next Tuesday.
Thanks everyone. Another great class.
