Music Files and More…

January 16th, 2009

Durufle rehearsal tracks, along with an updated CD track listing printout, for Alto have been added to the Music Files page.

From Dr. Whitmire: Dear Singers – Thanks for a great rehearsal on Tuesday! It was truly amazing. And what a wonderful group of new singers we have. This is going to be the best season ever. You are going to adore the Durufle Requiem. I have decided to cancel Saturday’s Women’s Section Rehearsal. I am feeling a bit under the weather; besides, I am hearing that I95 North is going to be impossible on Saturday due to Inauguration traffic. As most of you know, this is something that I almost never do. I know you will all work hard with your CDs, and I encourage you to get together with members of your section and work. Start with the movements that appear on your Durufle worksheets. This makes our Saturday, January 24, 12 noon make-up rehearsal all the more important, so be sure to attend.

From Dr. Whitmire: Here is a reminder about Friday’s appearance by Jonathan Vassar and the Speckled Bird (NOVA Coffeehouse) at the Kennedy Center in D.C. this Friday evening, January 16, at 6:00 pm. Flyer here.

    Jonathan Vassar and the Speckled Bird will be playing at the Kennedy Center in D.C. this Friday evening, January 16, at 6:00 pm!

    We will be appearing for an hour-long set on the Millennium Stage in the Grand Foyer of the Kennedy Center. It’s a free show, no tickets required.

    We are excited about the opportunity to play in such a prestigious venue. If you plan to be in D.C. this weekend before the Inauguration, we hope you’ll stop by the Kennedy Center for an hour on Friday evening.

    Likewise, if you have friends in the D.C. area, we hope you will send this e-mail on to them and encourage them to start their weekend with us on Friday at 6:00 p.m.

    Here’s the official blurb on the Kennedy Center website:

    If you can’t get there in person on Friday night, don’t worry — you can watch the show through the magic of the internet. The concert will be streamed live at 6:00 p.m. on the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage website, and will also be archived on their site. You can find the link to the live webcast here:

    Thank you so much for all of your support!

    Jonathan Vassar and the Speckled Bird (Jonathan Vassar, Chris Edwards, & Antonia FD Vassar)
