Choir Resources

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.

Brahms MP3
