Our third rehearsal of Faure’s Requiem and it is beginning to sound as if we are conquering it! Beautifully. Holly Teague took rehearsals for the sopranos and altos before tea whilst Donna Teague rehearsed the men.
Performance dates and venues are being finalised over the next few days – it’s looking like two performances just before Easter, one with the Wem Community Choir at St Peters and St Pauls Parish Church in Wem and another in Whitchurch, possibly in St Alkmund’s Church.
Donna is very busy planning everything on our behalf – pianist, organist, venues, dates, liaising with the Wem Community Choir, soloists… she really works hard for us as well as with us, and did you know this – she even arrives at the rehearsal room half an hour early every Monday evening to put out over forty chairs on her own. Arrangements are being made so that she doesn’t have to do this, but until those arrangements are in place it would be lovely if some choir members turned up early to help her.
Every week for a while now fresh faces appear leading to new choir members joining and fortunately some have performed Faure’s Requiem before. We are also singing lighter music and will begin practicing songs that we will be performing at a wedding on 16th May
