Warm up for adult choir
Date: October 15, 2009
There are several threads here concerning warming up juvenile choirs, but I don't see any regarding warming up an adult choir. Does anyone have recommendations?
We are very technically competent - but we always spend 10 or 15 minutes having a 'fun' warmup that is nevertheless relevant to the repertoire we'll be working on. We have one or two concerts a month, and the 'rolling' repertoire (a slowly-changing core with the occasional one-off piece thrown into the mix) is sung off-copy. So, we don't so much need basic technical practice as specific things like singing semitones against each other, two choirs together and so on.
