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!

  2. Haha! This sounds really interesting, Jarod! Why not try doing canon too if possible. And then do harmonization? Echoes are wonderful too. Conventional, but pleasing to the ears. =)

  3. I would love to add the fancy shmancy effects but I'm afraid teachers dont have much time to train together...

    It is better to let them practise by themselves at home & then come together for a few practise sessions at the last minute.

    That's why I chose familiar & easy to sing songs for choral singing.
    And that's also why I call it choral singing... Not choir.
