WISCONSIN STATE MUSIC CONFERENCE


Setting the Tone For Exceptional Rehearsals With Choral Warm-ups That Work!
Friday, October 26, 11:30 AM-12:45 PM, Room J, Monona Terrace
Gary Kent Walth, Director of Choral Music Studies, UW-La Crosse

*Welcome/Introduction
*I am convinced and truly believe that the key to the success of each and every
choral rehearsal lies in the first minutes of the rehearsal. Clear and distinct
musical purpose and artistry can begin the minute the singers walk into the
choral classroom. The choral conductor must be there to lead and guide.
On time, on task, on top of the heap
*The tone for each rehearsal is set with carefully planned and appropriate
WARM-UPS that either introduce or re-enforce the following basic choral concepts that
are integral to every rehearsal:
posture/alignment
breath management
sight reading/solfeg promotion and enhancement
tone production
diction
intonation
articulation
blend
balance
rhythmic accuracy
phrasing
artistry, nuance
style awareness/historical perspective

Important Starting Points:
1. Warm-ups should not be seen as just a routine activity using the same two or
three repetitious vocalises throughout the year. Each warm-up should:
a. Be carefully chosen as part of an organized rehearsal plan
b. Have an objective and an outcome
c. Be related, in part, to the choirs repertoire and overall performance goals
2. I believe a daily warm-up regimen should include:
a. 1 physical warm-up and/or a warm-up emphasizing proper posture and
breath support
b. 1 vocal warm-up promoting flexibility, lightness of tone and bouncy fun
c. 1 or 2 choral warm-ups that promote listening, tuning, diction,
equipping, and preparing minds & voices to rehearse and perform
No matter the length of rehearsal time, most choral conductors use 10 to 12%
of that time for warm-ups. Effective warm-ups must be performed with the
same care, artistry, and positive energy that the repertoire is given. In fact, it
might be to your advantage TO PERFORM A CHORAL WARM-UP FOR YOUR
LOCAL AUDIENCE ONCE PER YEAR!!

Walth-2-

3. The question begs to be asked: When do vocal warm-ups become choral warm-
ups, or vocalises become choralises? Is there a difference? When do vocalists
become choristers?

WARM-UPS (the musical scores used in this session)
most are written in treble and bass clef
o can be used by a variety of choirs
most have piano accompaniments, many with chord symbols, roughly interpreted
o a cappella performance is preferable when appropriate
o I encourage choral conductors to become proficient in reading chord symbols-
it allows you to multi-task
no need to read the melody, which benefits singers ears
allows the conductor to listen more closely, comment and problem-solve
several can be performed in canon form and have a [X] to designate starting points
words/lyrics are either solfeg syllables or sing-able syllables
o Because the practice of sight-reading is a daily or at least frequent activity for
most upper level choirs, the incorporation of the use of solfeg syllables is
employed in these warm-ups. Singers should be familiar with movable-Do
syllable singing so that sight-singing becomes a natural part of the choral
rehearsal process. All warm-ups should be sung interchangeably with sing-able
vowels and solfeg syllables

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


CONCLUSION
No matter what warm-ups or rehearsal plan that I choose, as a choral conductor and
choral music educator my daily mantra will continue to be:

Each living, breathing choir member entering my choral classroom will leave my
rehearsal a better singer, a better musician and most importantly, and better person!

A LISTING OF 12 CHORAL WARM-UPS USED IN THIS SESSION

Title Objectives/Choral Concepts
1.Rich, Round and Resonant Improvement of tone quality with good vocal technique
Relax, let the breath do the work, emulate the sound

2.Triad Arpeggios Forward placement with a feeling of lift in the back
Work for tall, open vowels, tune the 5th of the triad,
Sing a high 3rd, throw down a good quick breath.

3.Bachianna Sing with a light, agile and supported sound, with
perfect intonation up and down.
Each section must listen so that vowel blend is the
priority of this warm-up

4.Unison to Four Parts A study in contrast between a unison, light staccato in
the first 2 measures and a legato connected four part
chorale-like second half of the warm-up. Learn the
legato section using solfeg syllables. A good beginning
warm-up and also valuable for blend with f or ff
singing.

5.Choral Contrast Another study in contrasted phrasing and articulation.
Promotes careful reading of the entire musical score
and the singing of open vowel colors with proper
support. Another in tune triad challenge.

6.Descending Scales This unison warm-up encourages intonation awareness
with attentiveness to half steps and whole steps. It also
functions as a beautiful a cappella canon.

7.Desc. 3rds w/ Asc. Scale A ballad-like warm-up featuring descending thirds and
ending with an upward scale from re to Do. This can also
be effective as an acappella canon. Keep in mind the
image of an icy stairway, taking small steps going down
and big, solid steps to the middle of each stair going up.

8.Sol La Sol A warm-up with a scale floating through the passaggio,
promoting supported, forward placement. The perfect
example of an arched sound. This warm-up can also be
used to give shy singers their first experience as a
soloist, although brief it may be.


Walth-4-

9.Upward Leap Waltz A nice teaching piece for exhibiting phrasing and nuance,
this waltz can really help voices open up and display
richness and depth of sound. Pitch accuracy, especially,
especially on the tri-tone and forward motion make it a
good challenge.

10.Short Chorale Without Words Choristers can be challenged to sing this five measure
chorale using movable Do solfeg. The piano will play the
next transition chord and the singers can check their
pitch accuracy. Sections might even switch parts for
variety.


Pronunciation warm-ups
11.O magnum mysterium Used when learning Lauridsens O magnum

12.Cantate Domino Used when learning Schtzs Cantate Domino

Also try using a major triad on the lowered 7th for the 2nd chord of the measure, for a Gershwin-like effect.
