Saturdays November 11, 18 and 25, 2017 – Come Sing Messiah: Rehearsals
Led by Alan Thomas.
For those who wish to improve their reading and knowledge of the Messiah choruses in preparation for the December “Come Sing Messiah” performance, we offer three Saturday morning rehearsals.
Organist and choir master Alan Thomas leads the rehearsals. Rehearsing with Alan is always fun — his piano accompaniment will jazz up any chorus in a surprising way! He will go over all the choruses to be sung on December 1. Usually, we look at about half-a-dozen choruses every week, rehearsing some of the more difficult ones more than once.
Date: Saturdays November 11, 18 and 25.
Time: 10 am to 12:15.
Location: Parkdale United Church, 429 Parkdale at Gladstone (directions are here).
Come to 1, 2 or 3 sessions to prepare for Come Sing Messiah!
Cost: $5 per session for members, $10 per session for non-members.
Rehearsal tickets will be sold at the door, with people indicating the date or dates they wish to attend (1, 2, or 3 rehearsals) and purchasing the required tickets at the price in question.
Non-members, i.e., people who are not on CAMMAC’s current list of members, will have the choice of:
- updating their membership, which would allow them to save by paying the member price, or
- joining CAMMAC: in this case too they will pay the member price, or
- not joining CAMMAC but optionally provide us with their email address to allow us to send them CAMMAC notifications by email.
A video of the 2011 rehearsal of the Hallelujah chorus is here (4 minutes – best viewed using Internet Explorer).

BYOM: We ask that you bring your own music; however, a few copies will be available for sale at a reasonable price.
Messiah t-shirts will be available for purchase!
