Principal rehearsals are in progress, and we begin Amahl chorus rehearsals immediately following MESSIAH. We  begin our Tuesday evening rehearsals on Tuesday November 28th (7:30pm at Bethel). We intend to offer some Saturday rehearsals as well,

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….
