Preparations

Having 2 concerts within a month (on Sat 26th Jan and Sat 23rd Feb) means that preparations for both concerts are rather overlapping. Whilst we have rehearsed for Saturday's concert and are now in the midst of last minute admin. and production of programmes etc., last night we had the first rehearsal for the Sat. 23rd Feb concert. This has meant that at home I have had competing piles of music and paperwork for both concerts. Still I have disposed of nearly 2 dozen sets of music for my choir FifteenB which makes the space situation rather better.

Contrary to our practice in the last few FifteenB concerts, the concert on Feb 23rd will have the choir singing just 3 larger works, a Haydn Mass, my cantata Crossing and my Choruses from Passion. This latter work is the only piece the choir have never sung before. The concert will also include 2 pieces for smaller groups, one of which is a premiere and I've not heard it yet so that is something to look forward to!
