Unless otherwise noted…

Rehearsals  are in the sanctuary on Thursdays from 5:30-7:15 pm.

Sunday mornings the choir meets at 8:45 am (unless the choir is not singing.)

Regrettably there is still no elevette and won’t be until the summer

Music Sunday is postponed to May 19th

Plan on a rehearsal Saturday morning the 18th from 9-11.

Due to too many unknowns and potential complications, we sadly will not do the 2nd performance in the evening.  If there is anyone you know who might enjoy hearing it but can’t make it to the Sunday morning service, they would be welcome to come on Saturday morning.

Rehearsal April 18th:

Work on Great Trees, Water Buries, Too,

Run through and briefly work on The Ground,

Introduce The Crow Calls.

What we are singing for services:  some of this is tentative due to some schedule conflicts

Practice Tracks Ticheli’s Earth Song

There are multiple versions available on youtube.  I didn’t put the links here because different people might have different preferences.  The ones that include “Guide voix Sopranos (or alto, etc)” in the title are the only that have a real person singing PLUS the other parts.  The others that I found either do include all parts, with selected voice dominant, but are done on keyboard, or have a real person but only singing the selected part by itself without the other harmonies.  The drawback for the “Guide voix” videos is that it is a male singer and he sings the Soprano and Alto parts an octave down.  So, take your pick!  Just search for Ticheli Earth Song Tenor (or bass, etc..)
