Ellington, Messiah, Recruitment

November 8th, 2015

From Dr. Whitmire: Dear Singers-

(1) As promised, attached is a Duke Ellington chorus that we will sing at the Black History Month Celebration on February 23. I think it will be a fun break from all our Messiah rehearsing this week. Here is a link to a good performance. It is the whole work, so scroll over to 47:15 to hear this song, Almighty God.

(2) If you want to sing the Messiah with me on December 13 at 3 pm (rehearsal December 12 at 10 am), please let me know asap. It is a part of the year-long celebration of the beautiful new chapel at Virginia Theological Seminary. It should be a fun event.

(3) I talked about my desire to recruit more young singers, and I had a productive meeting with my singers under thirty last Tuesday. I heard some good ideas, including about spreading the word via social media. I feel sure I have left someone out. If so, please let me know. I don’t want to leave any one out. Here is my list: Nora, Daniel, Kris, Luise, Claire, Eva, Seho, Francisco, James, Sarah Jane, Kaylee, Veronica
