Amahl and the Night Visitors -

If you have previously sung the chorus parts for "Amahl and the Night Visitors", please consider joining us for the Southland Symphony Orchestra and Chorus production . Performance is January 7th at 4pm at Bethel.

You will need to be "off book" (music memorized), as this is a staged (semi-staged, given our space) performance. You may be able to have cards with the lists of names/fruits, etc in the first shepherd's chorus (emily, emily...etc) but it is strongly preferred to be completely off book.

If you want to participate - Be SURE TO CONFIRM with Dr. MANN (EMAIL HER)

We are already working with our principals, and actually plan to begin Amahl rehearsals very quickly following MESSIAH. We expect to begin our Tuesday evening rehearsals on Tuesday November 28th (7:30pm at Bethel). We may be offering some Saturday rehearsals as well, but we haven't yet determined those dates.

Michal Dawson Connor is our artistic/stage director (and our “Balthazar”), AND is working with the chorus early in the preparation process, so that when we get to our final preparations, we are having fun, will be able to be “off book”, and will know exactly when/where to move/stand, etc….
