Bulletin for 10 August

Hello Choir,
Here is the bulletin for Friday 10 August.
At the next rehearsal Carlos is planning to work through the entire concert program.  Here it is again:
  • Five Hebrew Love Songs
  • Se Equivoca la Paloma
  • Instrumental – Borodin String Quartet No 2 (1st and 3rd movts)
  • West Side Story
  • Songs and Sonnets
  • Instrumental – Tchaikovsky String Quartet No 1 (2nd movt Andante Cantabile)
  • A Little Jazz Mass
  • Son de la Loma
Rehearsals and concert:
As usual, two rehearsals will take place in the week before the concert.  But please note changes:
  • The mid-week rehearsal usually held at the school will be held on Wednesday, 22 August at Cerretti Chapel.  As some of the musicians cannot attend the Thursday rehearsal, this will be the general rehearsal.
  • A regular rehearsal will be held on Thursday, 23 August, also at the Cerretti Chapel.
The concert is on Sudnay, 26 August at 2.30.  We will entertain the audience post-concert on the lawn beside the Chapel.  Please bring suitable finger food.
Tickets and publicity.  
You know that wonderful feeling of a full house?  We are not quite there yet.  So let’s work on it.  Kurt tells us that he sold six tickets after posting the concert on his Facebook account.  If you have one, do that.  I am attaching the flyer again.
Kerry asks that we should bring along to the next rehearsal any large un-placed posters.  She will find a way to display them.  She also suggests that we uste any of the light-weight postcard size flyers for letter-boxing.  If are holding any unused ones, please bring them along too.
Eight Grands:
Our brilliant Valerie will perform on Saturday, 18 August in a concert at the Joan Sutherland Hall in Penrith along with seven other renowned pianists.  Should be good fun. Go to our website for more details.
Margaret Chaffer’s husband, Geoffrey passed away early this week.  He has been a loyal follower of the Choir’s events.  We share in the family’s pain.
For once I am relieving Richard of the weekly blog writing.  Having spent a delightful week in the Townsville Chamber Music Festival, you can find my take on it on our website.
