Ultimately the director has the final word and is gracious enough to
ask for input from the membership, so thank you very much. Please do
not worry about taxing voices with long or early rehearsals as proper
warmups prevent wear. I'm sure the director will guide us on vocal
My suggestions is holding fewer rehearsals, varying the time of day
rehearsals are offered, and if the director or someone else is willing
to take upon themselves the enormous task of providing the choir with
mp3s with notes, words and a pronunciation guide in advance, that will
solve a myriad of problems.
I was unable to participate in the choir this year due to my son's
fight schedule. Hopefully a different schedule will ensure my ability
to join you fine folks in future Pennsic KWC's.
One more suggestion, which I hope isn't offensive to some, is that an
electronic keyboard be used in the early rehearsals for efficient note
learning. It provides the support and allows multiple parts to be
played at the same time. If vendors can use their phones to call in
our charges, certainly we can bend the rule in honor of comfort for our
singers who don't have the ability to read music well at sight.

Using NoteWothy, I can insert lyrics so you can see when to sing what
words as the music plays. Some people learn to read music watching the
note change color as it plays. Did I mention that there is a free
player you can download?
I am enclosing 2 files, one is all parts same volume and the other has
the alto louder than the others. Try it out. I have instructions on
how to download the viewer written for non-computer users.
