The Drama Group are having their dress rehearsal in the URC Church. This will not affect our rehearsal in the hall but the car park may be very busy, so please give yourselves time to park elsewhere if necessary.
The chorale -
This will open the concert and we will be singing the first 4 verses. This is to make a link with Bach before the Clara Schumann solo and will start with the concert with something mood-setting and dramatic from the choir.The chorale is quite dark and thus contrasts nicely with the Brahms so there is some form of dramatic/emotional development from Bach to Clara to Brahms.

The rehearsal at Wistanstow on Sunday 3 December will be 7-9.30.
This will be our only with the orchestra before the rehearsal at 3pm on the Saturday of the concert so we hope that as many of you as possible can make it. The postcode is SY7 8DG and to give you some idea, it is about 30 minutes drive from Shrewsbury town centre. Wistanstow is mainly one road, with roads going off at right angles. Coming from the north end, the village hall road is on the right, with a good signpost pointing it out. See home page for link to directions or rehearsal page for map link.
The rehearsal on Saturday 9 December will be 3-5pm and, as Chris said on Wednesday, we will be wearing formal concert dress in the evening.
