Spring Break

March 4th, 2016

From Dr. Whitmire: Dear Singers,
Thanks for your good work on Tuesday. We accomplished a great deal on Springtime in Funen and got a good start on Chichester Psalms.
However, we had the highest number of absences of the semester. I was especially disappointed at the number of singers who did not notify me or their section leader on their absence. As you know, If you have missed more than twice this semester you will need to audition to perform with the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic next month. I will announce addition times next week.

Basses will meet tomorrow at 11:00 am. Tenors have not reached a quorum and will not meet tomorrow.

Everyone- Please work on you own or (preferably) with others in your next over break. I next concerts will be here before you know it.


PS- Here is a event that you may be interested in.

The College Music Society

CMS Presents:
A talk with Chris Betts
Tuesday 3/15, 2pm AT 130
What is it like being a professional organist and musician?
Come and learn from Washington Cathedral’s organist from 2012- 2015, Christopher Betts, who will be talking about his 20+ years of experience in the U.K and U.S performing concerts, directing, recording, and playing organ for church services.

Before coming to Washington National, he directed the 5,000-member First United Methodist Church in Lubbock, Texas, where he served for eleven years, overseeing the church’s extensive and acclaimed music program. Originally from the United Kingdom, Christopher graduated from Oxford University. He also studied the organ at Magdalen College, Lichfield Cathedral and St.
Alban’s Cathedral. He has appeared in concerts and on recordings, radio, and television in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
