Hello Oakland Choral Society
We would like to help you feel prepared for the concert, so here are a few resources to help.
Note from Andrew, Schedule for the next four weeks.
Short Tentative Broad-form Schedule (keep in mind this is subject to change): 04 SEP 2018 - (ALL MEMBERS) General goals - sing through, for general "feel" and . pronunciation intro.
11 SEP 2018 - (ALL) General goals - work through movements 2 & 6, diction, transitions, and music
18 SEP 2018 - (ALL) General goals - review mvts 2 & 6, work through movements 1, 3, 5
25 SEP 2018 General goals - review mvts. 1, 3, & 5, work through movement 7 and 6.
October to follow, again, this is subject to change but gives us a general idea of what we are looking at for the month of September.
Concert date, Fall 2018
Sunday, November 17, 2018 @ 7:30 pm. (may change the time)
Venue: St Regis, Birmingham MI.
This is one week after the 100 year anniversary of Armistice day, so we expect that the 11th day of November would not be a good date, since we would be competing with other events.
The singing of a Requiem a week later is symbolic. Let your friends know, those that sing and those that may wish to commemorate this anniversary in a special way.
Concert Date, Spring 2019
Spring 2019, April 7, 2019
We still recommend going to the Chorial . net site for recordings of the music. There are the MP3 recordings for rehearsal for both the Faure and the Lauridsen.
