Reminder to everyone that rehearsal is at FRASERVIEW this evening. We’ve a lot to do, and I would ask your concentration, and minimal chat – I know it’s tempting to talk when you’re not singing, but if instructions are being given to Richmond Singers or to the Orchestra, discussions in the Chorus are not helpful!
Rehearsal will be in the following order (because of instrumentation). It would probably help to re-organise your music…
1. Three In White – Chorus, flute, perc
2. Jul, Jul – Chorus, string quartet
3. Night of Silence – Chorus, Singers, strings
4. Hallelujah Chorus – add trumpets
5. What Child is This? – add winds
6. (possibly) Sing We Now of Christmas – Singers & Orchestra
7. Hope for Resolution
8. Jessye's Carol
9. Jesu Joy (Jesus bleibet)
10. Hark the Herald / Come all ye Faithful
11. Nutcracker, Christmas Festival, Sleigh Ride – Chorus & Singers can leave early
You don’t need your red folders at all – but don’t forget to take “Jul” and “Night of Silence” out of them, if you had them in from Saturday.
Thanks to the folks who did City Hall – I know our “audience” was small, but we were heard upstairs, and they enjoyed the carol-singing. I felt it was good for us to have a sequential carol-sing like that, and to know that we have those secure.
Let’s plan to start on the dot of 7:30pm this evening!
