Messiah this Sunday! and other reminders
Thursday, December 3, 2009 12:35 PM
Hi, Messiah Meetup members!
Our final regular rehearsal is 9:00-11:00 this Saturday 12/5, as before.
Our "dress" rehearsal is 1:00 to 3:00 Sunday 12/6. Orchestra will be rehearsing without us from 12:00 to 1:00, so be in your places in the loft (quietly, please!) at 12:55. From 3:00 to 4:00 is a break; if you like you can use this time to change into your concert attire, which is: white shirt/blouse and black slacks or skirt; no ties, no dangly or flashy jewelry; please avoid perfume and cologne. Concert is at 4:00 and is followed by a reception open to the public. It's going to be a great concert, with soloists, organ, harpsichord, and strings, and will kick off the season in fine form!
Now that you have your Messiah part down cold, there are few other opportunities to show off:
+ South Pasadena High School Orchestra asks any and all to join them for their holiday concert, which will feature the Hallelujah Chorus. Thursday, 12/10. Free. Concert begins at 7:00 p.m. To sing, arrive by the 7:45 intermission and sit in the orchestra pit.
+ Caltech Glee Club sing-along: Friday 12/11 at noon, Dabney Lounge. Free.
+ L.A. Master Chorale sing-along: Saturday, 12/12 at 2:00 and Sunday, 12/20 at 7:00. Tickets $24 and up. Note: this is the whole piece, not just the so-called "Christmas" portion.
