A very productive rehearsal yesterday.We worked very hard on both Brahms and Berlioz. Whilst singing both in English it offered an exciting insight into Brahms German Requiem. Challenging, very beautiful and so different from Mozart and Jenkins. (Still people commenting on the impact of the November 11 performance).
Next weeks meeting will take the form of an open rehearsal together with a community carol sing! The schedule will be:
Setting up/helping team 16.45. Seats from hall to chancel.
