Adding more instruments that just piano
Date: April 21, 2014
I am a Music Education student at the University fo Southern Maine. I am taking a Chroal Conducting class and we were given pieces that we are going to conduct at certains schools. The piece I was given was Agnus Dei from "Missa Kenya" which includes piano, horn and percussion accompianment.
My question for this piece and in general for other pieces, is it usually harder to add other instruments other than piano to SATB? And how would one go with praciting with both groups? Practicing together multiple times very close to the concert or multiple practices over a couple of months before the concert?
