Concert dress:

Not yet announced. Probably black with red accents.

Do not use perfume or any scented products.
Some of your teammates have asthma.


Choir-only Rehearsals:

Yikes! We have only three rehearsals to learn this music. On each of these days, we will meet 7-9 pm.

Monday, November 22nd
Monday, November 29th
Monday, December 6th




Dress Rehearsals:

  • Now we work with the paid musicians. We are expected to know our part really well. Learn the music before these rehearsals.
  • Terry might not lead warm-ups for the singers. No time for that. Please take care of your voice. Do some gentle warm-ups.
  • Stand where you are told to stand, sit where you are told to sit, move efficiently when told to move. Don’t chat while others are rehearsing.
  • Susan will need our help to move chairs, music stands, etc. Please join the effort. She has a big job and needs volunteers.

These long rehearsals do not require the choir to be present all the time. You will be told exactly what time to report in. When it is announced, the times below will be changed.

Wednesday, December 8th, 7:30 – 10 PM, with orchestra
Friday, December 10th, 7:30 – 10 PM, with orchestra
Saturday, December 11th, 9:30 – 12:00
