Singers of all ages and levels of experience are invited and most welcome to join us for the annual UUCV Christmas Eve Family Choir! All you need to do to sing with us on Christmas Eve is attend at least ONE of the three scheduled rehearsals. Then show up at UUCV, wearing your favorite Christmas Eve outfit, by 6:30 PM on Christmas Eve in preparation for the 7 PM service. Plan to join in the fun!
Rehearsals are scheduled as follows:
- Sunday, December 17 at the conclusion of RE time (~11:30 AM) downstairs in the RE classrooms
- Thursday, December 21 during regular choir rehearsal (7 PM) in the Sanctuary
- Sunday, December 24, 4:30 PM, in the Sanctuary. (We will again be offering a lasagne dinner for Family Choir singers in the dining room after this rehearsal. A donation of $5 per person toward this meal will be appreciated but not required.)
If you’d like to get a head start on practicing, the following materials may be helpful:
The audio files below may also help with practicing. Click a tab (Melody, Trebles, or Basses) before clicking play to hear that particular part emphasized.
Wondering which part to sing? The easiest part for most people will be the “Melody” line, which you may sing regardless of how low or high your voice is. If you prefer to sing harmony, and your voice is highish (most women fall into this category), feel free to try the “Trebles” line. If you want to sing harmony and your voice is lowish (most men fall into this category), try the “Basses” line. Feel free to swap back and forth as you’re comfortable!
