CH p.37: O Christmas Tree / CH p.42 Jingle Bells
Once Malcolm Brodie gets to the piano at 12:30pm, it’s mostly singalonga – his harmony will often not fit with what you have written. Don’t worry too much about singing from the music; go for words and tune, and fake the harmony if needed!
Anyone who’s not doing either of these, I’ll see you at FRASERVIEW for the December 1 rehearsal!
