First Rehearsal Review

January 18th, 2014

From Dr. Whitmire: Dear Singers-
– Thanks for an excellent first rehearsal of Spring 2014. My 30th year at NOVA is going to be a great one!
– Peggy reports that we had (1) singers present who were not registered, (2) registered singers who were not present or did not sign in, and (3) long-time singers who were neither present nor registered. I hope that all these problems (especially #3) are remedied on Tuesday.
– Please have all your music at Tuesday: Jazz Mass, Jabula Jesu, Go Down Moses, Lift Every Voice, Sea surface full of clouds. Free music and Music Files are at If you have not printed them by Tuesday, please be prepared to purchase music at rehearsal.
– We will begin rehearsals of Frostiana on March 4. It has been reported that some of the bookstore’s music packets were missing pieces. Faye, the manager, assures me that they will give you any piece you did not get. Take care of this right away. You should have:
Choose something like a star, The Road not Taken, The Telephone, Stopping by a woods (men only), A Girl’s Garden (women only)
– Music files for Go down, Moses will be at soon. This will be an auditioned piece. Music Majors are required to audition as a part of mid-term exam. Auditions will be Sat. 1/25 for Women and Sat. 2/1 for Men. I will hear those who cannot come on Saturday on Tuesday 2/4.
