Watch! Watch! Watch the conductor!
Watch him for the tempo and for changes in the beat.
Thik your starting note with your whole soul; take a relaxed breath.
Bring out the moving parts, crescendo on a rising line, decrescendo on long held notes if a long rest follows…
Listen to each other, sing the meaning of the words.
But! the first rule, the most important rule, is: Watch!
