I received the following notes from Larry after I had posted the rehearsal/concert information -- Craig McCaa
Excellent work, singers! It’s such great fun to hear great music coming together. We’re almost there, but please keep in mind: Only one more Monday rehearsal before we join forces with the orchestra. At that point, there will be no opportunity to check pitches, review words, or explain rhythms. With that in mind, please note the “assignments” below:
Assignment 1: Please mark your calendars carefully for the coming schedule through December:
Monday Nov. 2 7 p.m. Last LCS (alone) rehearsal Choral Room
Monday Nov. 9 7 p.m. Combined LCS/orchestra Choral Room
Saturday Nov. 14 10 a.m.-noon Combined Choirs/orchestra Branscomb stage
Sunday Nov. 15 2 p.m. Choral Call-time Choral Room
3 p.m. CONCERT! Branscomb
Monday(s) Nov. 30-Dec.14 7 p.m. Rehearsals resume Choral Room
Assignment 2: Because we did concentrated work on several less solid sections last week, you may have found areas that were not yet comfortable for you. Please take a moment to look over last week’s rehearsal material, just to reinforce the improvements you made.
Assignment 3: Second halves: We did serious study of the first parts of the Confitebor and the Beatus Vir, but had to (in the interest of time) neglect the second halves. Please review those sections before Monday: pp. 22-28 and 39-45, just to be ready.
Assignment 4: Programs/Posters/Tickets/Donors: We’ll be distributing PR materials and tickets on Monday. Your help in spreading the word, soliciting advertisers and sponsors, and selling tickets is vital. Please think about ways you can help here. We want to sing for a wonderful audience!
Thanks for your great work! See you on Monday,
