Lastly, Caitlin Crane was singing soprano alone. The group performed six songs and almost every member had a solo, which was entertaining to see the talent and range of the individual singers. I enjoyed that the choir decided to perform Deck the Halls, which is a holiday song that I’m very familiar with. Although I’m more used to the traditional version of the song, I enjoyed the faster tempo with a more carefree tone, but kept it warm and festive so that it doesn’t stray too far from the source. The song still had a narrow range, but it was still very enjoyable to hear each singer’s voice complement each other’s. Two other pieces that stood out to me were Exactly Like You composed by Jimmy Hugh and Beautiful Love composed by Victor Young. What stood out about the pieces is that they used a Trading Fours technique, which would consist of an improvised part where each choir member’s four bar segments alternated with the drummer and simultaneously paired it with a Double-Timing tempo, which kept the tempo consistently moving fast throughout the movement, going as fast as another tempo with each other. After the Choir’s performance, there was a short intermission for the Jazz Combo to prepare for their performance. This gave time for people to use the bathroom, and I noticed a lot of students left after the break, giving the concert hall more space, and giving some other students who were sitting on the stairs the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
