Where Bigelow chorus students can come to watch videos of choirs, discuss and suggest songs, and read about the latest ideas floating through Ms. Alberts' head.
I thought the first one was better. Despite the choreography of the second one, the first one was more smooth in terms of voices, and an overall better sound.
Sorry if I'm submitting this twice, I got some error last time...I think the first one was better. Despite the choreography of the second one, the first one was more smooth in terms of singing, and had an overall better sounding choir.
I actually prefer the second choir better. I like how the instruments go along with it, while I feel the orchestra in the other one seemed to over power the voices. I also really like the ending notes of the second chorus.Gracie M.
I thought that the larger chorus was a bit more professional sounding; but smaller chorus did a good job sounding authentic... and I thought that the motions were creative. Also, the smaller chorus memorized all their music which I thought was impressive. The larger chorus did however hold their music the right way and didn't cover their faces with their music. They both sounded amazing. ~Grace C.
I prefer the second one because it has some cool dance moves but they aren't too distracting to the audience. My one concern was why the three boys in the middle were not dancing at the beginning and then suddenly started to dance.
I like the top one better because…1. They are better singers. For the bottom one, I think a lot of people couldn’t hit all the notes correctly. 2. The accompamant didn’t upstage the singers in the upper one. 3. In the lower one, the boys don’t do the choreography at the beginning and I think that that makes it look a little strange.
I liked version 2 better because I liked the choreography.I also liked that there were less instruments because in version 1 the instruments almost drowned out the singers voices.Izzy L.
I like version one better because they're playing with an entire orchestra and I like how there singing at a more upbeat tempo than version two.-Isinsu B
Emily M.I liked the second version better because the hand motions and moments that they made throughout the song made it seem more alive then the other version even though there were less people singing.
I liked the first one better because they all sang the high notes, unlike the second one. Also, the first one was more in sync, whereas in the second one, the people were slightly off.~Lucy Z.
I really liked the first one. I think that the voices blended together so much better than the bottom one. Also, the accompaniment didn't drown out the voices of the singers on the top one. The bottom one did have a nice choreography, but I would rather have better and more fluid singers than a fun dance. The singers in the top one just seemed so much more prepared and more skilled. -Tamara K.
I liked the first one better, because I thought that they sounded more in unison and it had a better sound to it ,if that makes sense, compared to the second one.
I liked the first video better, because those people were professional,they were in harmony(unison),and I was able to enjoy it.
I liked the second one better because the chorus sounded more "synchronized," and the dance moves they did fit the song well. They were also paying good attention to the conductor and not to the audience.~bradley
I liked both choirs, but the second version's hand motions made the song seem really awkward I felt. I loved how bold the first version was, my mouth dropped at the end! I can't wait to start on ours.
I think I overall preferred Version 1 because the tone of the singer's voice was much more smooth. The instruments blended perfectly with the singers voices, not too in the background but not to protruding so that it drowned out the singers. The singers were also paying good attention to the conductor and opened their mouths enough to sing. I very much enjoyed the ending of Version 1 because it was very smooth and elegant and all the singers hit the correct notes, and then it ended again with a big sort of bang. Version 2 had no comparing effect and while the dance moves were fun and creative, it seemed they were more focused on making it look good rather than to sing it the correct way. ~Annabelle T.
Aleah C.Both choirs did a good job, but I liked choir 1 better because it sounded like they harmonized and sang better than choir 2. I felt that the movements from choir 2 were a bit distracting.
Even though Version 1 sounded a lot more professional and advanced... I felt that Version 2 was better. I say this because unlike Version 2, Version 1 stood stiffly while singing ( even though you are supposed to do this while performing) Version 2 jazzed it up a tad bit by adding some cool arm/hand movements. Also, a con about Version 2 was that going towards the end the students sort of got a tad bit offbeat. But they got right back on track.-Taylah R,
I liked Version 2 better. It sounded less rushed and more spirited. Also, it was smaller and I could hear the different parts and instruments more easily.-Claudia M
