Message to Membership – February 2, 2024

Message from the Music Director

Dear Chorale,

Thank you for another productive rehearsal this past Monday. I hope you are enjoying this as much as you appear to be! Overall, the sound is wonderful. Moving forward, one of the things that we need to make sure of is that we pay attention to the old saying, “it’s in the details.” For us, it is entrances, cut-offs, dynamics, and articulations. Everything must be exactly as we have talked about for Maestro Colby, who will be at our next rehearsal. If there are still places that you are not feeling solid, please take the time to iron that out before Monday. To that end, I encourage you to look at the entire “Alleluia“ section of the last movement. Please pay attention to the instructions for next week Wednesdays rehearsal in Farmington.

I handful full of people have expressed interest in performing on the February 12 conclave. Even though the deadline has passed, I am willing to extend that, so if any of you are still interested, please let me know by this Monday.

See you soon!
