I am 44 years old and love to sing. A CASA member recommended that I join. I have done that and would like some advice on how to get started......
While Griffon4/Tom is holding general auditions in the OC, south of LA--- we are looking for a bass in the greater Los Angeles area Evolution was (or I suppose technically still is) the 2009 LA Regional Harmony Sweepstakes winner. We've got a few concerts scheduled in the upcoming months, and a recurring monthly gig in Santa Monica so rapid learning/reading music is certainly a boon.
So next Tuesday is the full audition for my group and I wanted to let the CASA.org community chime in on their experiences or ideas on the audition process. A quick insert; personalities were assessed at my informational meetings...one of the big reaons for having them was to get an idea of who I would be seeing. To that end, Facebook has helped out as well.
So I was listening to Mouth Off the other day, and it was Mouth Off from 6/7/09, where there is that unusual dance beat in 500 Miles and it reminded me of the guys group from my high school when they did Uptown Girl (Deke Sharon's Arrangment). Where they add VP in the arrangment and what he does is a dance beat until he pops up all of a sudden and does a solo out of nowhere. Just a side note: This isn't my group i'm part of the mixed group. i was standing off to the side with my mouth open when they sang this.
I’ve been asked by several people recently, all of them “non-acas”, that is, people who aren’t incredibly familiar with a cappella music, how and why I devote so much of my time to my a cappella pursuits. I’m reminded in my conversations that many of these people haven’t been lucky enough to share in the camaraderie that comes from singing in an a cappella group, and that a lot of them don’t have similar passions. featureimage:
