Rehearsals Fall 2019

Rehearsal recordings for Fall 2019 Mad River Chorale are posted here
in reverse chronological order- i.e. most recent one on top.
Recordings are made with an iphone and transferred via email.  The m4a format files are converted to mp3 files with Format Factory.  Because the Chorale is much louder than Mary Jane, the recordings are run twice through Audacity’s compression tool (raising soft sounds and lowering loud ones).
You can “left click” and play the sound bar for each portion of the rehearsal, or you can “right click” the name link and download the mp3 file.  Rehearsals were at Harwood unless otherwise noted.
