Coaching with Shirley

What a night! Shirley Kout coached our Merced performance last night. Then she placed us and coached us for our contest songs. It was a truly awesome evening.

I could not believe how the sound changed as Shirley moved people around the risers. She started with our Leads and then added the Baris. The sound was awesome. Then she added the Tenors - glorious! When she finally added the Basses, we had a full, resonant sound - that sounded like a whole lot more people than we had on the risers!

Michael and Shirley worked so well to help get us to the next level - layering on more skills to the ones Michael already drew out of us. It is so wonderful being part of this group. I can't wait to see what the next few weeks bring.
