The Pend Oreille Chorale will start rehearsals on Monday, Sept 18, to begin work on the winter concert. Music and CDs will be handed out. Participants are asked to please bring their black folders.
Again, if there are experienced singers who wish to join, please show up for the rehearsal and we will test your vocal range and assess your ability. Reading music is not necessary for chorale members as rehearsal CDs will be provided, made possible from many hours of work by bass Dr. Alan Ball. A commitment to knowing your part prior to the concert is necessary.
Practices will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Mondays every week starting Oct. 1. The choir will meet in the Seventh-day Adventist Junior Academy until mid-October. The concerts are scheduled on Dec. 14 and 16 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Sandpoint.
On Sunday, Oct. 21, the Pend Oreille Orchestra will meet from 2 -4 p.m. As always, experienced string players, especially violins, are invited to audition. The auditions will commence at 1:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Those who have already played with the orchestra need to be ready to rehearse from 2-4 p.m. in the same location. The full orchestra is requested. There will be only six rehearsals before the dress rehearsal, so everyone is needed.
This winter the focus will be music geared to the Christmas season including a Mass written by music director, Mark Reiner. If you have any questions please call directors, Mark or Caren Reiner at 208-290-2644.
