Notes for directors:
Registrants will be sent recordings and a PDF that is free and legal to copy for both selections. Please have the students listen to these practice tracks a few times to familiarize themselves with the music.

“O La Le” – Have students learn these parts on solfege. We will learn the very easy text the day of! If your students are familiar with the Curwen hand signs, we may use those some in rehearsal. I’ve attached simple percussion parts if you have some particularly eager students who want to prepare those in advance.

“Happy Wanderer” – In the “loo” section… please ignore the notated harmony (sorry) and just have the students the same verse melody on “loo”. Hopefully the recordings clear up any confusion!

Find practice tracks here.

NOTE: This is the same song, but arranged in different voicings. Also note that it is the same mass choir song as last year. Those in the Unchanged Voice Choir should purchase and rehearse the S.A. version. Those in the other choirs should purchase and rehearse the T.T.B.B. version
