For the next two rehearsals (Mon 15th & 22nd Sept) Huw wants to rehearse different parts of the choir separately. So…
Sops and Altos simply go to the usual rehearsal venue at the Music Hall at Marling.
Tenors and basses need to go the Drama Studio in Marling’s East Campus. From the Cainscross Rd turn into Beards Lane and park at the top of Beards Lane on the left in the usual car park.  On the right there are some steps leading to some double doors. Go through the double doors and pass along the corridor and keep going to the end where you will enter the Drama Studio.
We will be reunited in the Music Hall with Sops and Altos for the second half.

MESSIAH IN THE SUBROOMS
Sunday 7th December. We will be asking for names for this on Monday. You will need to be available for rehearsals on Thursday 25th September, Thursday 16th October and Thursday 27th November.
SAVE SOME CAR PARKING SPACES PLEASE
Please could you only park close to the rehearsal hall(the top 5 spaces) if you have lots of heavy/ awkward stuff to carry. Or there’s no refreshments!!
ANNOUNCEMENTS
If you have anything that may need to be announced to the choir, please see Brough or Molly who will wield their mighty power of discretion! Most relevant information will be available in these weekly emails, which thanks to my newly appointed technology assistant(thanks Heather!) are available on the website. We want to limit announcements on rehearsal nights to essential choir information only.

That’s enough, off with you and practise!
Oh, and please stop talking during rehearsals, I couldn’t bear the embarrasment of Huw pointing you out! Unless, of course, it’s let’s annoy the conductor week! Where is that essential rules for choirs gone?!
