Inside King's-Edgehill School

From Choreography to "Stone Cold" in a Heart Beat

choriographyAs you may be aware, King's-Edgehill School thespians, musicians, and dancers are gearing up for one of the first non-equity productions of Mamma Mia here at our School from November 22ndto 24th (mark your calendar!). Grade 10 student, Sarah Bell, and Grade 11 student, Katie Goddard, are both instrumental in choreographing some of the numbers in the show. While waiting for the troupe to work out their steps of Waterloo during the last rehearsal, I heard the two girls harmonizing a different tune that is not a song in the show. Their voices blended beautifully on this song that I had not heard before. I approached them and asked if they would let me feature them in our weekly Newsletter and they immediately smiled and said yes. Katie announced that she would learn a piano accompaniment for the next day. What this clip reveals is a first rehearsal of the piece. While I was getting the camera ready, the girls attempted Demi Lovato's, Stone Cold, with Katie playing the piano. They discussed the harmonies and a chord change; then, I turned the camera on them. None of the weekly videos I release for our Newsletter are engineered or edited. This is a fun example of an 'almost perfect' first attempt, with a reaction at the end that will entertain you nearly as much as their performance. Click hereto watch their performance.
