1. This week we had an abbreviated rehearsal so we could enjoy the social get together (thanks to Dr. Lexi for superb planning, and to every one who brought the deliciousness!). We rehearsed Musicological Journey (all), Fum 3, Gloria, and Rejoice In The Lamb.
2. We have 4 rehearsals before the dress rehearsal (by the way, it’s not really a ‘dress’ rehearsal, so you don’t need too wear your concert attire): Tuesdays 11/5, 11/12, 11/19, and Sunday 11/24 (6-9 pm in Duke). Notes should be learned by now.
3. If you do not have your own personal black folder, I will be passing them out at the next 3 rehearsals. Make sure you get one if you need one, since after the 19th we won’t be rehearsing in Sloan.
4. Three upcoming concerts of interest:
-Friday November 8th, 7:30 pm in DFPH The Davidson College Chorale will present their Fall Concert.
Free and open to the public.
-Monday November 11th, 7:30 pm in DCPC Organ at Davidson presents Davidsonian Clara Gerdes. Formerly a student of Jane Cain’s, Ms Gerdes is a doctoral student at the Yale School of Sacred Music and an AGO Rising Star. You do NOT want to miss this—she’s terrific. As always, Organ at Davidson concerts are free, with donations gratefully accepted.
-Friday November 15th, 7:30 pm in Tyler -Tallman Hall L’Academie du Roi Soleil will perform with the Davidson College Collegium Musicum. LAR is a professional early music ensemble specializing I music composed during the reign of Louis XIV. Tickets must be purchased. Margaret Carpenter Haigh, one of the founders of the ensemble, sang with CASD for a season. Personal note: Margaret has one of the most beautiful voices I’ve ever heard.
