A rhythm game helps us to physically internalize the concept of notes happening on very defined beats. It is fun, so we will keep doing it for a while, trying very hard to make sure all our "notes" are in time. This is important in choir, especially with >200 of us, because we need to change notes at exactly the same time to get a crisp, not mushy, sound.

omg.... that game is so addicting. I got a 4860 and didn't die. I think rhythm is important for so many reasons. When you are working as an ensemble, if you are not singing at the right time, it makes the whole choir sound muddy. Not good...

With this post (and as more people comment), it's quite obvious that being wrong doesn't matter in choir rehearsal. Not only do we have plenty of time to fix anything, we have time to go beyond technically correct, to transfigure our music into an artistic expression.
