Thread Name: 2004 Getaway Program info
Subject: RE: 2004 Getaway Program info
I have reserved the weekend - and plan to be there.

I haven't run a workshop at the Getaway in a while - but it sounds like there might be plenty of folks with new ideas and I am happy enough joining in with other folks.

Has anyone considered a workshop for LOUD singers, loud songs, and loud choruses? Maybe it's a little crazy, but it might encourage some people to sing out. All this stuff about sharps and flats harmonies is all very well for those who can do that sort of stuff, but speaking as ToneDeafDave, there is something to be said for volume.

Re: Fat chorus - Jonathon used to refer to some of the Boarding Party numbers as 'fattening'. I never knew whether it was a private term, but it referred to those songs with long, rolling, melodic choruses, like 'Shallow Brown', that make you want to stand close to the other singers and drown in the music.
