Update Aug 18:  We will have rehearsals in NYC in the afternoons of Saturday, Dec 16, and Sunday, Dec 17.  It's important that all considering performing in this concert make it to these rehearsals!   There is no rehearsal on Monday, Dec. 18.  We will have the dress rehearsal on Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 19, at Carnegie Hall.  The concert is from 7:00 pm to about 9:00 pm.   We will charter busses to take singers to/from Warwick and the rehearsal/concert locations.  Details to follow and, as always, the schedule is subject to change.

In addition to singing Rutter's Magnificat in the concert, we will close out this concert with Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.


Some considerations:

° Concert dress is what you wear for your local concerts. However, there are some restrictions:

° Please do not wear sparkling jewels on stage. The stage lights reflecting off your jewelry will cause visual distractions to the audience.

° Because of the closeness of the performers, please do not wear hair spray or cologne.

° Please be sure to turn off all beeping watches and cell phones.

° Because there is a good deal of walking and standing on the day of the dress rehearsal and performance, it is very important to wear comfortable shoes!
