Welcome to the first rehearsal announcement of the semester! Please make sure you read each one of these-they actually do contain important information you should know.
1. I’ve attached the schedule and the list of rehearsal aides. Make sure the dates are on your calendar and the aides bookmarked so you can find them easily when practicing at home.
2. Please do not enter 201 Sloan until you get the all clear from one of the Roadies. Since we will be rehearsing with Davidson Singers, the Roadies will need to set up extra chairs before each rehearsal. At the end of rehearsal they need to reconfigure the room for the next day’s classes, so please exit the room quickly and continue any discussions outside 201.
3. Anyone who would like to be part of the Roadies should contact Bob Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Roadies assist Chris by setting up/reconfiguring 201 Sloan for each rehearsal and setting up/taking down risers for concerts (ours and those of the Chorale and Davidson Singers) that are not performed in Duke. The tasks are not hard, the time commitment is short, but it’s a very important service.
4. Make sure you bring ALL your music to each rehearsal. Since we are using College and DCPC music, use only pencil to mark on your scores (unless you get a photcopy). If you don’t have your own pencil, we will have a box of pencils, along with a sharpener, on top of the shelving outside 201 Sloan. Pick up your pencil (and sharpen it, if necessary) BEFORE rehearsal starts.
5. If you haven’t paid your dues/music fee yet, please remember to bring exact change or a check payable to DAVIDSON COLLEGE with CASD in the memo line. Dues are $50/year or $30/semester, and the music fee is $6. Marianne LeVigne, our Treasurer, will be happy to accept it.
6. Organ at Davidson is a series of monthly organ recitals presented by Davidson College Presbyterian Church during the months of September through March. We will be part of the February concert. The first of this year’s recitals will be on Monday, September 15, at 7:30 pm in the DCPC Sanctuary. The recitalist will be Dr. Andrew Scanlon, organ professor at East Carolina University and organist and choirmaster at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greeneville NC. These concerts are free, with donations gratefully accepted. A meet-the-artist reception follows the concert.
