Overall, watch vibrato, sometimes we are sounding flat because there is too much vibrato. Shape vowels taller and rounder. Example: the word weary in Bridge Over Troubled Water is sounding like weareeeeeeeeeeeee. Shape it more like "weareh." Be very careful of scooping. I heard quite a bit last night, especially on Forever Country. Watch breath marks, and use really good breath support. Sing with energy!

-measure 137 we need to work on notes and rhythm
-page 8 measure 65 and 69 we are adding "lalala's" to the right hand piano part.
-page 6 the "uh oh's" we get it by ourselves, but fitting it in with the rest of the choir is seeming to be a struggle. Let's blow Lisa away next time!
