"Music, being identical with heaven, isn't a thing of momentary thrills, or even hourly ones. It's a condition of eternity."

Next Rehearsal

Tuesday, October 21 at 6:30 in the music room at Halifax West High School

On this rehearsal, we will play the entire show for HalCon. See below for the order.

We should have time left to grapple with Cherry Tree Carol and Fireside Christmas, needed for December 9. After HalCon is done, the following rehearsal isn't until November 18, as Nov. 11 falls on a Tuesday. My exuberance of last night (on the realization that I was a week ahead) was erased when I discovered that Nov.11 was on a Tuesday, thus erasing the advantage. We will only have 3 rehearsals for the Christmas concert, so please read through the material that we have done so far. Thanks very much.

See you all next week,
