We welcomed all our new and returning singers, who gathered Saturday morning, August 18 at Dahlonega Baptist Church to get acquainted, and to launch our new season! In the course of the day, we introduced all the songs for the upcoming concert, THE BEST OF NGCC. We also learned movement games and played around with Conversational Solfege, learning the language of melody and rhythm. Music theory and singing basics were introduced as well. After a lunch break and the final singing session, we began English Country folk dancing, joined by a few veterans who came for the afternoon. After this vigorous activity, a bowl of ice cream was a welcome treat!
Many thanks to the staff and volunteers of Dahlonega Baptist who helped get us set up for the event, and provided the perfect space for the day.
