I gather the logistics for Swansea missed out the ‘where in Stroud we leave and get back to’. In case you were not at the rehearsal or missed Tom’s announcement – we leave from Stroud Leisure Centre. There is plenty of parking and you can leave your car there.

JUNE CONCERT PROGRAMME
This is what we are singing.

Rossini O salutaris hostia ( ref: European Sacred music)
Verdi Hebrew slaves chorus from Nabucco (ref pdf attached – Swansea people should have this already)
Mascagni Easter – tbc but we are not rehearsing it on Monday anyway!
INTERVAL
Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle ref Ricordi (best to buy the version with accompaniment)

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE FOR MONDAY:
Rossini O salutaris hostia
Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle (PMS Kyrie, Gloria, Cum sancto spiritu, Credo, Sanctus)

EASTER REHEARSAL DATES
As a reminder – there will be no rehearsal on 6th April (Easter Monday), otherwise we are rehearsing every Monday throughout April. Please look at the website (members area) for rehearsal dates – password ‘stroud’ http://stroudchoral.org/

POST REHEARSAL PARTY EVERY MONDAY!
Numbers were down last week – but we have managed to evict the grumpy old men from their prime corner seat!! Do join us after rehearsals. DIRECTIONS TO THE OLD CROWN, RUSCOMBE ROAD (next to Archway school). Turn right out of Marling or Beards Lane onto Caincross. At the roundabout take the 3rd exit past the fire station and follow up to the mini-roundabout. Take the first exit and then immediately take the first left into Ruscombe Road – also signposted to Archway school. The Pub is on the right – however take a right as if going into the school and immediate left into the car park. See you there.
