15th Rehearsal SCS 16/17 Season

Tonight, as the first really cold night we have had this year, we meet to go through the program and work out the difficult bits.  Some very nice pieces for this concert – great harmonies and chords so it should be fun.

We arrived to find a non standard set up for rehearsal, no chairs only the risers and we set up in concert formation. Then we were provided with the concert order and set to work on rehearsing in order the following pieces:

  • A Cappella Christmas Cantata
  • Five Christmas Carols (the sing along)
    • Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant
    • O Come All Ye Faithful
    • God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
    • Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
    • Deck The Halls
  • Hodie Christus Est
  • Huron Carol
  • Love Came Down at Christmas
  • Nativity
  • I Wonder as I Wander
  • We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Some work needed on some of the notes – James reminded us that as singers we need to connect with our audiences – that means we need to have expressions on our faces more so than “it was a long day at work”.  Smile and look like we are having fun!!!

Come see how we do?
