At our rehearsal on September 17 we revised the first movement of Bach's cantata number 182 Himmelskonig, sie wilkommen, Grieg's Ave Maris Stella from European Sacred Music, and movements 1 and 5 from Shakespeare Songs and Sonnets by George Shearing. We also began work on Ain't Misbehavin' and Autumn Leaves from In the Mood. Other pieces for the autumn concert include Bach by Jove! arranged by Bennett Williams, Mozart's Laudate Dominum and Ave Verum Corpus
There are several solo opportunities in this concert; details are on the rehearsal schedule and auditions will be held on September 24. Please note the rehearsal that evening will be in the hall at Tilehouse Street (NOT the church) and will finish early for anyone not taking part in the auditions
