From Student Choir to Teacher Student Quartet to Teacher Choral Performance
taken from englisharts.org
About 2 months ago, I was given the assignment to train a student choir for the retirement ceremony of the assistant principle of my school.
as can be seen here in a previous blog post.
However, only 2 students came for the audition.
I was thinking of changing the choir into a duet but Pn Adeliana (my advisor) came up with the brilliant idea of having teachers taking part too!
Thus, I decided to do a quartet!
So I started to compose a medley of well-known classics for a 4 minute performance.
Little did I know, there was another twist in store for this performance!
Soon, I was put in the teacher performance committee.
So my performance would only involve teachers...
and I had to come up with a performance where all teachers would be involved.
Thus, my quartet will have to be turned into a choral performance.
Something like a choir except they will sing the conventional way.
After a few revisions, my medley composition was approved today!
I used fragments of a few modern & classic songs.
These songs include those from Man Bai, My Fair Lady & The Beatles.
Man Bai's "Kau Ilham Ku".
My Fair Lady's "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face".
The Beatles' "Let It Be".
And "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow".
This is not the final revision though & is subject to change...
But I will definately make sure that it will be a great show fitting for a faithful servant of the people.
I will be sure to share the performance here!
