Next rehearsal November 7th -7pm

This past week we did a run through of all our pieces.  We appear to be in pretty good shape, but we can't let our foot off the gas.

It's time now, as Kate used to write, to get our noses out of the music and watch Lisa.

Be aware that on the top of page 7 of "Calypso Christmas", in the first measure, that the altos are singing notes that are higher than what the sopranos are singing.  Don't be fooled into thinking you're wrong.

Another little twist exists in "Coventry Carol".  We start by singing the refrain.  Then we sing the 3 verses without repeating the refrain.  Then we sing the refrain again after verse 3.

For those of you who weren't at the rehearsal, we decided to cut "Twas the Night After Christmas".  Please turn in your music this week.

Finally, we postponed the tryouts for the solos in "Twas the Night Before Christmas" until this week.  There are baritone solos on pages 11, 12-13, and 14-15.  Page 18 has speaking solos for sopranos and altos.  Pages 19, and 19-20 contains alto solos.  Page 21 has solos for sopranos and altos.  Finally, pages 23-25 contain a tenor solo.  I believe that's all of them, but feel free to check the music. 

I hope all of you are working on obtaining ads for our program.  At this moment, we're running behind budget.

See you all Tuesday,

Carl
