‘Idea’ music

Hi Juniors and Inters families,

Please find below the Soundcloud files for the 3 movements Juniors and Inters are singing in as part of the ASO concert “What do you do with an idea?”.  They also have copies of the music in their folders.  This is a great and easy way to practice while away from choir.

When you open the Soundcloud file, you will find learning tracks and cue tracks for everything, but please focus on the following, using practice tracks only:

#8           5c. It’s no good Song Practice Track

#11         7c. Protecting the idea Practice Track

#15         10c. Then one day Practice Track


Thanks and happy singing!
