Marshall Choir Cabaret!!! (Open to ALL choir students, including those in Quarter 1!) in Google Classroom

Marshall Choir Cabaret!!! (Open to ALL choir students, including those in Quarter 1!)

Hey folks, let's do a cabaret of our own music. Ok, well, YOUR own music. We are going to put on a presentation of individual videos that YOU make, and send to me, and I'll present them in a giant Zoom meeting that you and your families nd friends will be invited to. This is optional--you don't HAVE to do it. And, it's going to be an audition-type thing. Our first step is for you to pick a song and audition. So:

1) Pick a song you'd like to perform. It can be any song. Not one of our choir songs, one that you like, one that you listen to, and would like to share. It can't have any inappropriate stuff in it. You know what that means! Language, content...just keep it clean.

2) Find a karaoke track. We're going to be doing this with music backgrounds, so you'll need the music, and it cannot just be the song. That is, we're not just singing along with Billie Eilish, for example. The singing will be YOU. You kind find karaoke tracks all sorts of places, but ultimately you're going to need an mp3 file that you sing along with and put on a video, so I'd think about buying one on iTunes or something. Most tracks are about .99 cents, so they're not that much.

3) Record yourself doing SOME of the song, and submit it to me for an audition. We will talk about this during class this week...this is not the finished product, it's just a way for me to see who knows their songs so I can pick. We'll do this a few times this year, I'm sure, so if you don't get picked for this first one, don't worry! You'll get a chance! We want to get these by this Friday afternoon...

Start thinking about your tunes--which one do you want to do? I'll give more instructions during class this week...this should be fun!

Hi everyone!

Ok, so we want to make and upload a video of your part for "Don't Stop..." Remember a few things:

Video is landscape, not portrait
Try to eliminate background noise (appliances, outdoor sounds, household noise)
Have good lighting and a plain background...
Try and look into the camera, not away at things and your music
Sing out, and sing beautifully (which you all will because you are terrific!)


Also, Chapter 4 of Breezin"...
