Some great comments about Josh so far.
My favorite by the man with many names:
josh must sing at least one solo: the one maggie doesn't sing
Quite hilarious! Perhaps it brings up an issue on distribution of solos in the choir. I pledge to spread them around and also to have more opportunities this year. Will Maggie sing a solo? Every person has an equal chance.
Nick suggests that Josh must sing one solo this year as a condition of his return. Not a bad idea. He recommends "Flower of Maherally," a great tenor solo. Maybe! But we've done that one very well already, even though Clay wanted to sing it.
Clay wants an overview of strengths/weaknesses in the coming choir. That is something I wouldn't share. I view the choir as very strong this year. How strong? Well, it really depends on the individual efforts of the people in the choir. I will bring my best.
Chamber Singers will be a combination of Classical and Vocal Jazz. If you want a preview of the type of Vocal Jazz, listen to the Real Group (especially this CD) and a few from the Swingle Singers.
