Our next rehearsal is on November 2 at 17.30 when we will revise Bach Christmas Oratorio, Mendelssohn Cast Thy Burden and commence learning, (re learning ) Vivaldi Gloria. We will perform part 1 of the Christmas Oratorio together with Vivaldi in the concert to be given on December 21st with orchestra and soloists and it is vital that every one schedules diaries for maximum attendance … this is challenging music and every member is vital both for rehearsal and performance. The team is incomplete when one of you is missing!! If absence is unavoidable please continue to inform Vicky or firstname.lastname@example.org as it is disappointing for us all when voices are missing … and even more so if we are not sure why!
The orchestra for our concert on December 21 will cost c £1900 and it was agreed at our last rehearsal that we would raise this amount either through seeking sponsorship, patronage, coffee mornings, bean bag/marmalade/chutney sales….any other ideas?
The calendar of rehearsals has been updated but the dates for 2017 are provisional and are copied here for your diaries until summer 2017.
