We start singing January 17th

Dear singers past, present and future!

I hope your holiday break has left you well fed, rested and ready to start singing on January 17th.
I am very excited to get started on our spring production of “Considering Matthew Shepard” and know that many of you share the same feeling.

I’ve been listening to two recordings, one by U of Michigan and the other by Bob Cole Music Conservatory. One is a presentation made for television, the other a more traditional concert setting. Both are excellent performances that we will refer to along the way. I have made a spread sheet that includes all the movements, solos, and vocal range along with a time stamp where they appear in the videos. I hope you will check out the recording if you are interested in a solo. There are also many speaking opportunities.

Regarding books, currently we have about 45 copies. I know many of you have purchased a copy or perhaps you still have your NCC copy from 2020. If so, please let me know either way so I can order extras if need be. If you wish, there are a number on Amazon to purchase.

For brand new singers joining this year: please register at: https://forms.gle/JdYYka8ViSq69kAe6 We rehearse Tuesdays from 7:15-9 PM at St. Johnsbury Academy’s Morse Center for the Arts (55 Fairbanks Drive, number 20 on this map, parking adjacent to number 21)

Performances are scheduled for Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7.

At our first rehearsal, plan to come early to register, socialize and enjoy refreshments. Those who would be willing to assist with refreshments, please e-mail my wife, Stephanie, (srowejjh@gmail.com) by Sunday January 15th to let her know what you could bring.

I look forward to getting started and seeing you on the 17th.
