I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Please be prepared to run any and all pieces this week and next. Some further details below:
This coming Tuesday, we will need to meet in the sanctuary of the church. This is not an ideal room, so please be very cognizant of any extra noise during rehearsal. The end of rehearsal will be reserved for soloist to run there pieces with Sue.
The following Tuesday will be at Medfield High School. Please plan to be there before 7:30, so that we may begin right at 7:30. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as we will be standing most of the evening. Please be in your spot on the risers promptly at 7:30 for the dress rehearsal, as well. That rehearsal will be as much for our auxiliary musicians as for you. Soloists- be prepared to run your pieces with the orchestra.
For concert night on Saturday the 8th, please be on the risers dressed and ready to go at 6:00. You will have a 30-min. break before we begin the concert.
Your music MUST be secured in your black binder or black cover over the Messiah book by the dress rehearsal. Attire for concert night is: men in assigned tuxes, and women in all black, long skirt/pants, at least 3/4 length sleeve, dress shoes (Little to no heel recommend), no jeans/sweatpants; a *small* pop of red or metallic is fine (pin/jewelry).
In the meantime, practice all of your music! Even if you are not comfortable singing it alone to practice, go through it page to page with the words and the rhythms, and take time to connect more thoughtfully to the lyrics.
