Final 2 Weeks (11/16 & 11/23)
As we near the end of the Fall Quarter, we will spend the last two weeks gathering final recordings from musicians, and we will also spend parts of our rehearsal looking ahead to next quarter (remaining three movements from Apollo Suite), and gain more experience using UpBeat Music App.
Next week, I will start the Zoom meeting for Cadet Strings Red at 5:45 (15 minutes early). Musicians from Cadet Strings Green are welcome to join (links on BYSO website). During this time, musicians are welcome to drop in and practice using apps and working out any tech problems.
For next week, we need our musicians to record the Prelude from Apollo Suite at q=152 (performance tempo). It is essential that (1) musicians use the same YouTube recording*, and (2) we all use headphones when recording. We cannot have background music or sounds in our final video.
*the original recording has been deleted from YouTube, and the link above is the new recording with a slightly slower tempo
Musicians should now regularly use headphones while using FlipGrid and UpBeat Music App.
