(6th Graders- your homework is the post below this.)
Your homework (Due Wednesday) is to write a comment, 3-6 sentences or so long, that would be a good introduction to a song we are singing. A good introduction tells the audience something about the song they would not know just from hearing it. Possible things to talk about in an introduction:
-the composer's or lyricist's life
-the inspiration for the writing of the song
-interesting musical things in the song, like tricky rhythms, unusual harmony, word-painting, etc.
-interesting things in the lyrics, like alliteration, poem form, metaphor, etc.
-how we learned the song
-what you like about the song
Songs to choose from:
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
IF you are in Jr Districts- Break Forth
IF you are doing the Darfur Concert- Where is the Love
Post your answer in the COMMENTS. The first comment is my example, so take a look at that if you need one.
