UPDATE, January 9:
I have selected the music for the Winter semester for the Ladies’ Night Out Women’s Chorus of Rutland VT. The title of the program is “Peace and Hope in 2012” and includes Schubert’s Motet on Psalm 23, Schubert’s “Faith in Spring,” Bach’s “Sheep may Safely Graze”, Mendelssohn’s “Lift Thine Eyes”, Gwyneth Walker’s “Tree of Peace”, arrangements of “If I had a Hammer”, “Hey Jude” Copland’s “At the River”, a Madrigal-”Sweet Content”, “Old Irish Blessing” arr. Agay, “Let there be Peace on Earth” arranged by Jay Althouse and others!
We have a pianist, and a number of singers signed up for the semester, but still need more women singers of all vocal ranges! Concerts will be May 8-12 (exact schedule tbd) and rehearsals are every Tuesday starting Jan 24 from 7-9 pm at the Rutland Middle School Music Room.
I am asking all interested singers to contact me so I can hear them sing before placing them in the group. This is not an audition as such, but simply a get-together to share some singing so I can meet all the singers before the season starts!
Please let your friends and singers know about this wonderful semester of music and camaraderie with LNO 2012.
Ladies’ Night Out Women’s Chorus is getting ready for an exciting 2012 season, with rehearsals starting Tuesday, January 24. All interested women singers should contact director Lucy Tenenbaum to confirm your placement into the choir. If you haven’t sung for me before, I will want to hear you, but no audition is required—it’s more of a friendly sing along setting, no pressure! The choir has 13 rehearsals in the season, with several performances the first week of May (as yet to be scheduled). We practice at the Rutland Middle School Music room from 7-9pm. Singers must be able to carry a tune and blend their voices. We make rehearsal CDs for each voice part in a sectional rehearsal early in the year, so everyone has music to work with to learn their parts.
Come join LNO and have a wonderful winter and spring of singing and getting to know new and old friends. We have a social time at each rehearsal so everyone has a chance to get to know each other. Making wonderful music together is one of the goals of the group, but equally important is the opportunity to form a community of women singers who are supportive of one another.
Call Lucy at [802 775 8004 or email firstname.lastname@example.org ]to set up a get-together to sing, or confirm your intent to sing this season. Hope to hear from you soon.
