Do you enjoy singing The Armed Man? Here is an opportunity to sing it in a prestigious venue on an auspicious date to a distinguished audience.
Sydney University’s Chancellor’s Committee plan to honour students and staff who participated in World War I with a performance of The Armed Man on Saturday November 3rd at 7.00pm in the University’s Great Hall. The concert is masterminded by the Sydney University Symphony Orchestra, and will include Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto played by Kenichi Mizushima. The conductor will be Luke Spicer.
SUSO are looking for around 100 choristers from around Sydney to sing this iconic work. The Chorusmaster, Rachelle Elliott, is aware that MWC has sung the work before, and would very much appreciate having some experienced singers. She is prepared to recognize that experience by waiving some of the rehearsal attendance criteria.
Unless otherwise indicated, rehearsals are held in Glebe Town Hall.
The mandatory rehearsals are as follows:
Monday August 27. 6.00pm to 9.00pm General Rehearsal
Monday October 1. 10.00am to 12 noon and 1.00pm to 4.00pm. General Rehearsal.
Monday October 15. 6.00pm to 9.00pm. General Rehearsal.
Sunday October 28. 10.00am to 12 noon and 1.00pm to 4.00pm. Choir and Orchestra Rehearsal.
Sunday November 3rd. Rehearsal in the afternoon followed by performance at 7.00pm in the great Hall of Sydney University.
In addition, singers are asked to attend three of the following rehearsals, including their own sectional rehearsal. Rachelle will be prepared to allow some flexibility in attending these rehearsals to experienced singers.
Saturday September 8. 1.00pm to 4.00pm including Sops only from 3.00pm to 4.00pm
Monday September 17. 6.00pm to 9.00pm including Basses only from 8.00pm to 9.00pm
