Help, I′m in a colour group - what does it mean? First, relax. You′re still in Flare or Gleam and you′re still learning a set list with those groups to compete at nationals. However, you have ALSO been placed in a colour group: Green, Blue, White or Black. These groups will be learning separate numbers to fill out our year-end showcase. They also provide an opportunity for some of our senior flare members to work with older Gleam members and get a taste of some more difficult repertoire. With MSC continuing to gain popularity in the community, we get more and more requests to perform. These smaller ensembles will be perfect for these additional performances!
Along with planning next year’s set, we’ve also been busy making the DVD of Gleeful 2016! (Available for purchase this fall) For now, we’ve put a sample of ‘Lose Control’ up on YouTube - Enjoy!
Tickets are running low for MSC's final showcase of the year, Gleeful 2016! This year's performance features our two new competitive choirs, Flare and Gleam as well as special guests, "Youth Collective". It all goes down on June 11th at the John Elliott Theatre in Georgetown and it looks like it's going to be a sold out show. So get your tickets now through the theatre box office and we'll see you at Gleeful 2016!
"Perfect" by Gleam
Hey Gleam, we've posted a lyric sheet for "Perfect" (The song we wrote with Glenn Marais) on the practise page. Please have a look at who's singing which parts. You can also click 'audio' to hear a recording of Glenn singing it, just in case you forget how it goes, LOL. Be ready to record on Tuesday, June 7th!
Generations In Harmony
What a fantastic evening we had last Friday as invited guests of the Milton Song Spinners. "Generations In Harmony" was a wonderful celebration of how the language of music speaks across generations. MSC and Song Spinners joined together in favourites like, "I''d Like To Teach The World To Sing" and "From A Distance" in front of a sold out crowd at the Milton Seniors'' Activity Centre. Thanks again for having us, Song Spinners!!
Workshop With Glenn Marais
What a fantastic workshop we're having with Juno-nominated songwriter, Glenn Marais. The members of Gleam have already created some pretty impressive lyrics. Stay tuned to find out if we can find our melody. We record on Tuesday!
This workshop was made possible through a generous grant from the Milton Community Fund.
