Rehearsal Details

    We continue to welcome new members

Part of the joys of choral singing is getting to know your fellow choristers. During the pandemic this has been a challenge but even online, the time before the rehearsal and during the sectional practices does provide some opportunities for social interaction.

How we rehearse on ZOOM

E-doors to the online Spring Session rehearsals  open at 7:15 each Tuesday and practice  starts at 7:30 pm. The rehearsal lasts for 75 minutes and consists of : 
- 15 minutes physical and vocal warm-up  
-  40-minute sectional rehearsals (SATB) with professional musicians leading each section. Sectional practices use Zoom’s ‘breakout room’ feature.  
- a final 20 minute plenary session where we put the music together.
We use pre-recorded tracks to accompany members' singing in the plenary  sessions.
