September 2009

The preparation for the Advent/Christmas concert has officially begun! We have dusted off the pipes, refreshed our memories about proper posture and breathing including the twin-watermelon-under-the-arm trick. If you wonder what that's all about, you'll just have to come to the next rehearsal!
Even though we are still very early in the preparations we are already making some pretty serious music. Yesterday's rehearsal included some excellent interpretations of the vocal lines in Victoria's motet version of 'O magnum mysterium'. The singers are already working hard preparing for the first performance in December.
If you would like to join us to sing, we are still accepting new singers through the end of September. You can email director Will Wickham at wwickham@stny.rr.com for more information. If all you need is to hear some amazing a cappella renditions of renaissance choral music, save the date: December 6, 2009, 3 pm.
See you then!
