1. Recital Performance Information

  • 6/9 Session 5 6:30-7:30pm

  • Are you sleeping (English, French, German, Spanish, and Mandarin) Frere Jacques

  • Students should dress nicely, as they are performing a concert!

  • Instructions for pre-recital rehearsal if need be/check in

  • For the day of the concert we will warm up the choir briefly as well as to do some stomach breathing to prepare them to sing prior to performing, if parents can arrive 10-15 minutes earlier that would be great. 

2. Tips for practicing

Parents should have their children practicing their song at home in a daily basis if possible, listening to the music track and singing with the music video.  Parents are encouraged to sing with their kids at home and help them learning their lyrics as well as with the diction of the different languages if possible.  The Music Video also brings the song with the canon (the song sang in rounds) as well as extra languages (Dutch and Italian) which My Opus Choir will continue working on and learning in the near future.
