Lynn Brinckmeyer : Wander The USA With Warm-ups

Keeping singers in our ensembles excited and energized during the warm-up process is a consistent hurdle for educators across the nation. By using songs that are indigenous to different parts of our country, teachers in choral classrooms can help students prepare their minds, bodies and voices while sharing a bit of our culture and history from different areas of the United States. All of the songs can be used with both inexperienced beginners and advanced singers. The lesson suggestions introduced with each song are intended to be a springboard for teachers to modify and adapt to their own students' needs and skill levels. Each melody includes strategies that are accessible for those who are just learning how to use their voices, and also for those more sophisticated singers who enjoy a good challenge.

Q : The First Year : 00  1 CD

Q : The First Year

In its first nine months, Reno, NV-based Q took first place at the divisional level (California/northern Nevada), at the district level (not only winning its district, but outscoring every quartet in all sixteen SPEBSQSA districts) and finished 28th at the world championships in Montreal. Coaching other quartets at the Sacramento Area Quartet Workshop and student quartets at the Northern California Youth Harmony Camp, receiving standing ovations for its music and witty jokes at every barbershop show it headlined, Q went into the studio to record The First Year, its debut CD. What a year! "First Year" has 13 well-chosen classics that showcase the group's ringing chords and tight harmonies: "This Is It (Bugs Bunny Overture," Lerner & Lowe's "Almost Like Being In Love," "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," a very nice "Q Eyes Medley," "Alice Blue Gown," the traditional "I've Been Working On The Railroad," "I Used To Call Her Baby Medley," and Irving Berlin's "When The Midnight Choo Choo Leaves For Alabam." Randy Newman's heart-tugger "When She Loved Me" is particularly fine. Keep an eye on Q-they're making things happen in the Barbershop world!

Songlist: This Is It (Bugs Bunny Overture), Almost Like Being In Love, Don't Blame Me, I'm Always Chasing Rainbows, Anytime At All, Q Eyes Medley, Love Letters (Straight from Your Heart), Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Alice Blue Gown, I've Been Working on the Railroad, When She Loved Me, I Used To Call Her baby Medley, When the Midnight Choo Choo Leaves for Alabama
