All of our music students are making final preparations for Sunday's showcase. Each violinist will play a work with a local pianist in addition to performing with the choir. Above, you can see the SSA choir practicing choreography for "I'm Gonna Wash that Man Right Outta My Hair" from the musical South Pacific. They have done wonderful work learning a wide range of choral pieces, and this week they have been putting on the finishing touches.
The vocal music students are each singing one duet from Mozart's Opera Le Nozze di Figaro and one duet from a musical. Above, Elle and Adelaide are rehearsing the duet "Some Things Are Meant to Be" from Little Women. They are doing a wonderful job expressing their different characters and working together with their duet partners. Terry has been tweaking the blocking, and we will do our final dress rehearsal in the morning. Below, you can see the Via di Sant'Agata, and the columns on the left are the entrance to the church where we rehearse.
Today, we also had our first birthday of the program! We enjoyed a delicious spread of pastries in Zoe's honor after dinner, and she received a Ronaldo jersey as a gift!
