Thanks! We're in northeastern Washington state, so the choir she's in is just a small one. It's called the Dalkena Community Choir and they do an Easter and a Christmas Cantata each year, with 5 or 6 performances of each Cantata at different churches in the area. For a smaller choir, they really do achieve an amazing sound.

That's great blue! I love the sound of smaller choirs, they have more continuity, and alot of times you can REALLY hear some incredible stuff...kudos again to your kiddo

The choir director does a lot with the singers available too... he does a very good job. As for my daughter, she's fortunate enough (blessed) to have been born with perfect pitch (as long as she can hear herself singing, she's always on-key). 'Nuff "proud mom bragging" though... good luck to you and your sister. The choir experience is gonna be a lot of fun for both of you. :yayaya:

So do you know German or do you sing phoneticly?

I had to take voice lessons for a semester for music, I prefer playing an instrument than singing old Italian songs. I still remember the piece I had to study was "Caro mio bin" or something. The only thing I accomplished was turning the voice teacher on to Desperado by the Eagles. He thought all pop singers were hacks until I convinced him I could do better studying that than some Italian stuff that I could not master in the time allotted.

It's going to be a phonetic endeavor. I've definitely sung german before, but after getting done with practice tonight, came to the realization that this piece is INTENSE! Got all of the pronunciations and translations on paper tonight though, so I'll be a german studying fool for the next 5 weeks. I might have to buy Rosetta stone haha.

The most exciting aspect of this group though, is that everyone in there WANTS to be perfect. That 2 hours flew by...there wasn't any fooling around, just running through movements, tackling pronunciation, hammering home time and key changes...it's nice finally being around a group of people that takes this stuff seriously. It's gonna be great!

LOL @ you educating your voice teacher, good on ya... a lot of those folks can be pretty closed minded. on the other hand, a lot of them have had to sit through countless hours of untalented rejects who's parents want them to be the next eddie mercury. I'd probly think all pop singers were hacks too after that **** haha ;D
