Maybe trying to discover the source of all the unfortunate popping noises coming from the ceiling (not cool for recording).It takes a lot of energy and planning to pack rehearsal, tour, and recording into 10 days and make it , but Cliff and Trina did an admirable job with the scheduling and Mr. Of this year’s group, only 3 ensemble members had sung with Laudate before, so one of the biggest challenges was finding out what we sound like as a group and learning to blend with that sound.We received our music in February, so when we got to rehearsal in Lancaster we had pitches and rhythms down (well, most of them…) and could work on interpretation. Ken’s direction: he has a very intuitive sense about unique nuances that can bring a song to life, and he has a very quiet but humbly authoritative way of drawing those nuances out of a group.
