Cherry and Judy, our second sopranos, both came to this second rehearsal. Everyone was so glad to see them! They are so important because the Bach Magnificat has first and second soprano parts all the way through! It is SSATB instead of the usual SATB. Second sopranos have a very important part in this piece. A new Tenor, Polly, tried us out too. We'll have 3 female tenors in our growing section.
We broke into sections, SSA practiced together in one room and TB practiced in another. We got together and got all the way through the first movement! It was fun to begin to see how it all fits together. Our accompanist, Joan, was back too. Having her play the accompaniment helps a lot.
Everyone in the Chorale signed a wonderful card congratulating Ernest on his Honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts from Cal State, San Bernardino.
Come by and join in the fun!
