Dear choir member,

Please find attached the rehearsal schedule for this term and please note the departure from our usual pattern of rehearsals in the week of the concert: we will be having a joint rehearsal (in Harpenden) on Monday 20th March and an HCS-only rehearsal in the URC hall on Tuesday 21st March. There will not be a rehearsal on the Thursday. There will of course be reminders nearer the time but please put this in your diary now!

For those of you who missed the first week of this term, these are the sections we covered: up to p.12; pp. 107-8; pp 57-8

As Deborah stressed, familiarity with the music will allow us to watch the conductor at crucial points, so please spend some time working on it between rehearsals. Even if you don’t have the means to play the notes, checking that you are certain of the rhythms will be a help. The piece is available on Cyberbass and also on the site Debbie mentioned, John Fletcher (though this is a subscription site).

Best wishes

Gill
