Magic Choral Trick #88 Sample Rehearsal Schedule

My choruses generally stand for rehearsals unless we’re in the early stages of putting a song together. The notes and words will have been learned from sound files, not at rehearsal, but sometimes they’re still holding the sheet music – so we all sit and relax a bit. Guess we didn’t do any sitting and relaxing this night.

About janetkidd

I've been waving my arms in front of choirs now for more than 35 years - and these are descriptions of all the very best things I've learned. I direct a Women's Competitive Barbershop Chorus, a Men's Competitive Barbershop Chorus, a Med School choir, and for a few weeks each year - Big Choir (about 100 voices) - which performs at an annual fundraising concert. Hope at least some of these Choral Magic Tricks will be useful to you - and thanks for reading. Janet
