As you may be aware, King's-Edgehill School thespians, musicians, and dancers are gearing up for one of the first non-equity productions of Mamma Mia here at our School from November 22nd to 24th
(mark your calendar!). Grade 10 student, Sarah Bell
, and Grade 11 student, Katie Goddard
, are both instrumental in choreographing some of the numbers in the show. While waiting for the troupe to work out their steps of Waterloo
during the last rehearsal, I heard the two girls harmonizing a different tune that is not a song in the show. Their voices blended beautifully on this song that I had not heard before. I approached them and asked if they would let me feature them in our weekly Newsletter and they immediately smiled and said yes. Katie announced that she would learn a piano accompaniment for the next day. What this clip reveals is a first rehearsal of the piece. While I was getting the camera ready, the girls attempted Demi Lovato's, Stone Cold
, with Katie playing the piano. They discussed the harmonies and a chord change; then, I turned the camera on them. None of the weekly videos I release for our Newsletter are engineered or edited. This is a fun example of an 'almost perfect' first attempt, with a reaction at the end that will entertain you nearly as much as their performance. Click here
