Chorus Rehearsal Schedule for Dona Nobis

Dona Nobis Pacem rehearsals

Hi, folks

With Light Up The Choirs safely behind us (thanks to all who supported!) we’ve got to put full focus onto the Dona Nobis Pacem, and (I hope) start easing some Christmas stuff in.This schedule will no doubt adapt, but it will help with where you need to be putting your own practice at home.  What I hope you have been doing is reinforcing at home the stuff we’ve been reading for the first time in rehearsal.  Now I need you not only to do that, but also to do some careful prep on what’s coming up.  It will be something like:

26 September

**sectional with S/T in Fireside Room and A/B in choir room – working

·      pp.6-11

·      pp.14 (15), 16, 19-20

·      pp.38-39

full rehearsal to read through

·     pp.48-52, review 54 to end

3 October

**sectional with T/B in Fireside Room and S/A in choir room

·      pp.1-5

·      pp.10-14, 17-18

·      pp.22-24., 26-28- this is the heart of it, and needs to be known!

·      pp.30-36, 40-45

·      pp.48-52 review of last week’s work on 54-end

10 October

**run-through, warts and all, identifying where we need to tidy (and then doing it!)

17 October

**rehearsal with Orchestra, AGM, more rehearsal with Orchestra (and then some Christmas stuff)

24 October

**mop-up time – this is where you need to be able to ID trouble spots and ask for checking

MONDAY 30 October

**7:30pm rehearsal with Orchestra, not past 9pm – and then some Christmas stuff

Saturday 4 November

**12noon rehearsal – done by 2pm, I hope, so you can get some vocal rest

**7pm call for 7:30pm concert

If you are missing rehearsals, it is your responsibility to catch up on what you have missed.  This is not a concert that can be done on Tuesday rehearsals only – it needs homework
