CCC

Fabulous rehearsal last Tuesday everyone! And what a great turn out on a cold night. I’ve been impressed with your musicality and efficiency at this year’s rehearsals. 

I’m excited for the upcoming Calhoun Christmas Concert! Thanks to everyone for making this a special one. Invite your ‘framily’ to what is sure to be a stunning event. If by chance your gang can’t make it to the concert, I would certainly welcome them to this Tuesday’s ‘dress’ rehearsal. We’re going to want to share this one.

We will start rehearsal by working a bit on the Farandole before going to a straight run of the entire concert. Kim will be joining us as we put together the flow of the concert with the reading of Thomas Hegg’s “A Cup of Christmas Tea.” You may want to check this great piece of literature out at:
