The Star-Spangled Banner

I love singing with Triple Trio! I have such an amazing time with these incredible women. Yesterday we continued the recording session we started about a month ago. We laid down another take of Chili con Carne, Anything Goes, and Operator. We recorded Anything Goes and Operator in layers, first recording the piano, then the "back up" voices, and lastly, the solo over the top. In some ways, doing it that way seemed more difficult, but the sound quality and mixing should be a little better. I can't tell you how exposed I felt recording my solo with no one else singing. I was a little uncomfortable, but it was also fun. I almost felt professional. :) Sadly, I never sound as good as I would like when I listen to the playback.

We also decided that we needed to have an arrangement of The Star-Spangled Banner ready to go. Good thing we have Liz! She just whipped up a four part arrangement for us -- she is incredible! We learned it last week and recorded it yesterday. We also took a video of it because we thought it would be fun to try and sing for a Rockies game or something like that. I'm sure all our husbands would love to go to that performance. :) Here it is.
