Welcome back, everyone! If you are receiving this email and do not plan on singing this semester, please reply and let me know so that I can take you off the email distribution list.
For those singers who weren't with us last semester, you need to pick up 3 pieces of music for the concert on February 10th, and also pay your dues and music fee (total of $36 exact change or check payable to DAVIDSON COLLEGE with CASD in the memo line).
Returning singers: if you were unable to return your Gala music and borrowed folder, please bring them to the next rehearsal.
At the last rehearsal we went through both the Festival Te Deum and Rejoice in the Lamb, leaving out the solo sections. We concentrated on those sections which are fast and wordythe tongue twisters. If you have trouble with those sections try speaking the slowly and first and work up to speed. We also handed out a new piece for the February 10th concert--Britten's Jubilate Deo.
Chris will hold auditions for the soprano and alto solos on January 28th, from 6-6:30 and *:30 until everyone who wants to audition has done so. Please contact Chris directly to let him know that you want to audition (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I have attached a copy of the schedule for the spring. Note that there is NO REHEARSAL ON MARCH 3RD.
I have also attached youtube links for use when rehearsing at home. There are also mp3 files of Te Deum and Rejoice on our website, if you want to download them and sing in your car. Website: choralartssocietydavidson.org Password to Members area: CASD.
I have also attached an analysis of Rejoice in the Lamb for your reading pleasure.
PLEASE SILENCE ALL CELL PHONES DURING REHEARSAL.
