This message is specifically for Chorus tour singers and parents of teen/child singers going on tour. Tour rehearsal schedule in Westerly.
First, two important definitions –
1. Regular Full Chorus - Every singer in the Chorus of Westerly organization (adult, teen, kid).
2. Tour Chorus - Only the Chorus singers (adults, teens, and kids) who are going on tour.
On Sunday, May 21, the Regular Full Chorus will perform the BACH B MINOR here in Kent Hall. The next Regular Full Chorus performance after that will be SUMMER POPS in Wilcox Park on Saturday, June 24th (with rain dates on Sunday, June 25 and Monday, June 26).
Starting with the first Monday rehearsal night after the May 21 BACH performance, our rehearsal schedule will be augmented through our departure for the tour.
Please note, for Monday May 22, June 5, June 12, and June 19, the rehearsal schedule will be as follows:
5 pm to 6:45 pm - Regular Chorus Monday kid/teen rehearsals
6:45 pm to 7 pm - Break
7 pm to 8 pm - Tour Chorus Rehearsal for Bach
This is for ALL singers (kids, teens, adults, going on tour)
8 pm to 8:15 pm - Break (Tour kids/teens go home)
8:15 pm to 9:45 pm - Regular Full Chorus Rehearsal for Summer Pops
In addition to the above Monday hours, there will be the following tour rehearsals for the Tour Chorus (all tour kids, teens, and adults):
Wednesday, June 14 - 6 pm to 9 pm at Kent Hall
Tuesday, June 27 - 6 pm to 9 pm at Kent Hall or Chapel (TBD)
Finally, the Tour Chorus will perform a B MINOR "mini-concert" (not the full work) in the Watch Hill Chapel on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at 7 pm. Call time for Tour Chorus singers at the chapel will be 5:30 pm. The performance will be a little less than an hour.
Please mark these dates and times on your calendar now. If you see a conflict with these dates you must let Andrew Howell know as soon as possible (email him directly - firstname.lastname@example.org). We have a lot of work to do for the tour and each rehearsal and the performance are critical for our success with this glorious work in Germany. In particular, the concert in Watch Hill is really our only crack at practicing for the Thomaskirche service, and we want to do it right.
There will NOT be any rehearsals after June 28. Our next rehearsal will then be in Magdeburg in Germany!
