Confirmation of arrangements for Saturday 24 March. Handel’s Messiah
Great Malvern Priory is booked from 2.00 pm until 5.15 pm for young soloists and chorus rehearsals. Time is very tight to fit everything in so we would appreciate your assistance to make everything run smoothly.
Please arrive at 2.45pm and sit quietly in the nave. At about 2.55pm Jonathan will tell us where he would like us to sit for the rehearsal and concert.
The chorus rehearsal starts at 3.00pm. That rehearsal finishes at 4.15pm and more soloist rehearsals will follow. You are very welcome to come early or stay and listen to the soloists rehearsing.
Please arrive at 7.15pm for the concert.
Concert dress is what we normally wear including MFC bow-ties and scarves.
As the Watkins Shaw edition of Messiah does not fit in the choir folders, please only use folders if you are using a different edition.
John would like assistance at 1pm from the men to move plinths and chairs into position.
Heather is looking for one more volunteer to help sell tickets on the door.
