Here is the bulletin for Friday, 12 October.
At the next rehearsal Carlos wishes to work with us through Part 2 of Messiah.
He wants us to learn three choruses by heart:
- And the Glory of the Lord (no. 4 page 11)
- For unto us a child is born (no. 12, page 55)
- Hallelujah (no. 44 page 171)
He also encourages us to learn by heart as much as possible so we eliminate ‘face-in the book’ singing. We can do it and it is rewarding.
Social evening (24 October):
If you have not paid and want to come – do so by the next rehearsal. If you require a vegetarian diet, please let Judy or me know.
For the diary:
In the week before the Messiah concerts we will have two rehearsals: Tuesday, 27 November and Thursday, 29 November – both at the Cerretti Chapel.
2019 rehearsals will start on Thursday 24 January.
I will give you the 2019 concert dates next week.
Call for volunteers:
We need three people to help with the provision of refreshments for the orchestra and soloists on the day of the orchestra rehearsal (Sunday 24 November) and on both concert days (1 and 2 December). Somebody who has done it before will ‘tutor’ you. A good way to get involved. As I said yesterday – if you are willing to help, please send me an e-mail. If there are no volunteers I will have to approach people directly. The Committee just can’t do it all. Thanks in advance to the volunteers. And eventhough it has to do with refreshments, it does not have to be done by women!
We are experiencing a hitch with the mailing of the electronic flyer to the people on our list. As soon as that is sorted out – some time between next Wednesday and Monday, I will let you know.
That is all. Stay dry and warm.
