CC Podcast S. 2 #8 - Play Ball! Bat 1000 in your Spring vocal warmups

Last year's forget-me-nots - I can't wait!
We're all on hold waiting and wanting the spring flowers to appear. Our new singing season starts and it's a whole new ballgame - 40th, contemporary, Canadian!

Personally, I can't wait to see the first flowers pop up through the snow.

It's early innings in our rehearsals and there are still songs to learn and skills to hone.

So, for our Choral Cacophony Podcast Season 2 Number 8, here's a fresh warmup that covers all the bases.
Chapter 1 - Warmup begins with vowels and mouth positioning - Pierre leads the vocalization with semitone changes.
Chapter 2 - Arpeggios on vowels until it hurts :P
Chapter 3 - Scales on Do - using movable Do hand signs. Two groups - one for each hand. Alto and Bass - Soprano and Tenor. Challenging harmonies.
Movable Do
