1. This week we worked on Fum 3, Musicological Journey (7 – 12), Wild Bes, Gaudete, Gloria, and Rejoice in the Lamb. We have 2 rehearsals left before we combine with the Chorale, and all notes for the Gala should be learned by now.
2. In preparing your concert attire for the Gala, it is entirely appropriate for these concerts to add a touch of tasteful holiday bling to your outfit (red bow tie, holiday brooch or scarf, etc), and even somewhat more ostentatious (but removable) additions for the Sing Along.
3. Three concerts of interest:
-Tonight, 11/8, 7:30 pm in Duke, the Davidson College Chorale presents its fall concert. Free and open to the public.
--Monday, 11/11, 7:30 pm in DCPC, Organ at Davidson presents Clara Gerdes, an AGO Rising Star and graduate student at Yale School of Sacred Music. Free (donations gratefully accepted) and open to the public.
