Buffalo New York Queen City Sweethearts Singing Ensemble Brings Cheer this Holiday Season

Buffalo New York Queen City Sweethearts Singing Ensemble Brings Cheer this Holiday Season


"The nearly one-hundred-year old vaulted ceilings of the community room of St. Mary’s Senior Apartments reverberated with an amazing sound last evening. Queen City Sweethearts blended their songs into each and every carefully phrased number. The walls of the former convent filled with acoustical finesse and the trio sustained an evening of wondrous variety. Their tenor, alto and bass voices filled the walls with Holiday songs old and new with only the assistance of musical cues from a tiny electric piano. The talented voices seemed to melt as they rose painting the glowing walls of soft golden light reflected from a towering Christmas tree covered with tiny white lights adding to a wondrous display of holiday splendor. The charming clarity captured the essence of each song and brought appreciative applause from every corner of the three-storey former convent chapel of the Sister’s of St. Francis. 
Neither one of the three admitted to having taken a single music lesson; their incredibly well-rehearsed numbers flavored with adept touches throughout the more than hour and a half performance brought the room to a standing ovation. "

Top 10 Mistakes When Writing for Percussion

10. Indicating the wrong mallets for an instrument.
Brass mallets on vibes? Try a hammer on a violin!



9. Writing the glockenspiel part as heard.
You shouldn't have to climb a ladder of leger lines to read a glock part. Keep it in the staff.

8. When in doubt, adding more suspended cymbal.
This is a huge mistake made by arrangers. Yep, cymbals add automatic intensity to a piece, but so can a bass drum roll, a rousing hand drum part, exciting mallet licks, or a hundred other combinations. Well-written percussion parts stand out in the band and church repertoire.



7. Better means more complicated, right?
This is my main mistake. A percussion part can be simple enough for a middle school, but it is the ability to use the different tone colors of the percussion palette properly that indicates a maturity in writing, not that impossible part for the timpanist that has them playing timpani, gong, crash cymbals, and triangle in the span of two beats.

6. Never trust Band-in-a-Box to write the timpan…

Shot through glass decorative bulbs from my parent's patio. Student work.
