New Year’s repertoire of the vocalist
New Year is a time of not only a holiday, but also concerts for vocalists, both beginners and experienced, performing on stage for many years. At this time, not only great concerts are held at all venues in the city, but also events at the music school. The New Year’s repertoire of the vocalist should always be bright and interesting, so that the audience remembers both the number and the performer. A few practical tips will help you show yourself beautifully on any New Year’s holiday.
HOW TO CHOOSE A REPERTOIR FOR A NEW YEAR’S CONCERT Among the many New Year songs that sound on the radio or on the Blue Light, unfortunately, it is not always possible to find beautiful songs for a vocalist, especially with an academic voice. But even a simple romance or an aria can be made part of the New Year’s fairy tale, if you correctly beat the festive image. To do this, you need to present it as part of the New Year’s holiday, and then it will sparkle with new bright colors.
Even Carmen’s aria will make a new impression if the soloist sings it in a New Year’s red satin dress with a boa made of large white tinsel. But in order to choose it correctly, you need to adhere to the following tips: Do not take songs with the theme of summer or spring into the New Year’s repertoire. In an extreme case, the content of New Year’s songs may describe a summer or spring memory of love that has passed. I wanted to remember her on New Year’s Eve, and maybe just think that it is not too late to revive feelings. You should not take New Year’s songs with often repeated verses if you do not have dance accompaniment.
Often the songs from the repertoire of Brilliant, Christina Orbakaite and club singers have many repetitions and a dynamic rhythm. It involves dance accompaniment, therefore, in a solo performance, such songs will not create a vivid effect and can be perceived as poor-quality vocal performance. Therefore, it is worth choosing a vocalist’s New Year’s repertoire that will show the beauty of your voice, nuances, professionalism and will be able to immerse the viewer in the New Year’s story.
Create a New Year story for your repertoire, even if it is not related to the holiday. It needs to not only be illustrated, but shown. For example, Carmen can flirt in front of Jose on New Year’s Eve, striking his heart once and for all in a bright way, for example, in a long red dress with a Santa Claus hat that captivates his fan. Or “Ave Maria” Caccini can be a wonderful prayer to the higher powers for love in the New Year at the elegant Christmas tree. With an interesting New Year’s story, even familiar arias become intriguing, especially since the protagonists are the heroes of the upcoming holiday.
Therefore, songs for the vocalist should not only be about snow, Santa Claus and the New Year tree, then the concert will turn out to be unusual, lively and interesting. But still, it’s worth choosing some interesting songs for the New Year-themed concert, where the words “snow, frost, blizzard, blizzard, cold, ice, frost, New Year and a gift” can be found. And the final song of the concert must be dedicated to the New Year.
CLASSICAL REPERTOIRE FOR NEW YEAR’S CONCERT – LIST Aria of the Snow Maiden Rimsky-Korsakov. The call of the Snow Maiden with beautiful melisms is rarely performed in the concert repertoire. But in the first numbers it sounds very beautiful if you beat it and fit it into the New Year’s program. “In the moonlight” by Evgeny Yuryev. A simple but beautiful piece that can be included in the New Year’s program of the classical vocalist. This work can also be taken in the national repertoire, as listeners love it very much. “North Star” Glinka. This work was written back in 1839 and is dedicated to the marriage of Nicholas I and Maria Nikolaevna.
It beautifully describes the story of the bride, love and expectations of a loved one. The music of this romance sounds very solemn and bright and it can become an adornment of any New Year’s concert. “Heart-toy” Gurilyov. This work includes the dramatic story of a broken heart. When performing, you should not dramatize the content too much, the romance should be easily and organically fit into the concert’s festive program. Fradkin “Waiting” (I swept the blizzard of the path, I dusted …). A very beautiful New Year song, which can sound good in an academic performance. It can also be included in the folk and variety repertoire.
