Message from Jenn. B:

This song is for the Fisher Cats Game (and possibly the Amherst Fourth of July celebration), so we have this Sunday and the 3rd to rehearse.

 
I know the rehearsal tracks include the first 4 measures, but for the sake of getting our pitch, we will start singing at measure 5.  Please pay close attention to the key changes.  The first one isn’t bad, but the transition into the key of C can be tricky, especially for the basses.  No pressure, but if we don’t get your pitch, it will be difficult for the upper voices to come in.  I do have “real” copies of this, but probably not enough for everyone.  We can share, but you can also print one out if you like. 
 
See you next Sunday!
