Mid-November Update

As November draws to a close and we make the turn into the "holidays", we start to make a final push in preparations for our Christmas Choral Concert.

Believe it or not, tomorrow night's rehearsal represents our last Thursday meeting in November! Luckily we do have an extra rehearsal to help prepare for the Bach this Saturday, November 19th from 9-Noon.  Those that were present for the last Saturday rehearsal undoubtedly found it to be tremendously helpful. Please make every effort to attend this important rehearsal.

A reminder that in previous blogs (see Magnificat Resources) I noted helpful resources in learning the Bach Magnificat. In particular I would like to point your attention towards CyberBass.com which has midi files of just your part available.

This coming Sunday we are celebrating "Thanksgiving" and in accordance will be singing Lloyd Larson's "O Give Thanks to the Lord".  The following Sunday marks the start of Advent and the beginning of the New Year in liturgical terms. On Sunday, November 27th, 2011 we will be singing the sublime "God So Loved the World" by John Stainer.
