March 30, 2016 - Rehearsal, part 1

Stravinsky:  
We did this rehearsal in mixed formation.  Lynne walked us through the score, looking for places where some or all the parts sing in unison; those should be marked. She also wants us to mark all the strettos ("a close succession of statements of the subject in a fugue"). Warmup included mvt. I, alto entrance, everyone singing the alto line.

Ran mvt. II, from rehearsal 5 (p.11), neutral syllables, then worked areas, through to end of movement.  At end of session, tried on text.
