To give us a bit more practise time to perfect these on the day without the orchestra, Graham would like us all to arrive in time for a 1pm rehearsal at St Mary’s church on Sunday, and we very much hope you can all make it.

We’d also like to thank all of you for showing up at the earlier time for the rehearsal last night.  It’s very comforting for the committee to know that you’re all reading these posts and taking on board the information 🙂  If you’re not getting the emails when these posts are sent out please let us know (but then you probably won’t get this anyway!!).

As I’m sure most of you would agree, last night’s rehearsal had some stunning moments but also some corners that could be improved.  We could all do with looking again at the Rutter piece and O Magnum Mysterium, and keep on practising those runs in Unto Us a Child is Born.  Please also make sure you all know the words for Carol of the Bells which is quite a fast one – and please do ENUNCIATE!

There are still Tickets to be had!

Yes it may not look like it on the seating plan, but there are still tickets to be had.  Especially in the ‘Un-numbered’ area to the left where you can just sit anywhere in that section (first come first served).  There are also some tickets with restricted view at a cheaper £10, so do keep telling people about it.

For the concert…don’t forget:

  • Promised refreshments for Sally
  • Your folder and music (and glasses!)
  • Concert notes
  • Refreshments for the down time between the rehearsal and concert
  • Dress code for this concert (in particular, DJ’s for men)

Fancy more Messiah?

On January 18th, Berkhamsted Choral Society are hosting their Bring & Sing for the Messiah.  Details are on their Facebook page!  Would be great to show our support and also get a head start on it, particularly if you didn’t manage to come to ours in November.

That’s it for now – see you on Sunday at St Mary’s Church at 1pm….
