This was our first rehearsal of the year with the SSO in the store front location. It’s a little crowded with all the musicians and choristers. One of the absolute joy’s of the evening was watching the interplay between Eric and Julia, he would provide either the choir or the orchestra comments on how he wanted sound or entrances to be done and Julia would add some of the comments from her experience with TafelMusik and her Baroque background. Very cool. We continued, running through the pieces for the concert – concentrating on how we and the orchestra mixed. Eric had us into sections from the start this evening and that is how we will likely be for the concert.
Timings and announcements for our sojourn at Knox were provided, we sang, we laughed – we danced (no, actually we did not dance). We learned a lot about the mix with the orchestra, we then left.
