Less than two weeks to Welcome Yule! Have you ever wondered what we do in the run-up to a show? Here are the top 5 things we’re usually doing at this point:
Find our dress blacks and blues.
Or rather, try and figure out where we left them last since it’s not like we use them every day. If we were good boys and girls, we’ve dry-cleaned them *immediately* after the last event. But we’re not all good boys and girls, and there’s always that moment when Jen goes through show night logistics and you’ll see a few heads pop up from taking notes. And you know those people are thinking, “Oh crap. Where did I put my stuff?!” And they head out of rehearsal like their hair’s on fire….
Volunteer to make cookies.
Our mostly all-volunteer status is no impediment to throwing a party. And the holiday concert is always a season and community highlight. So right about now, many of us are figuring out what cookies we want to make and bring for the reception that follows every concert. And let’s just say some of us are serious chefs. They don’t do no stinkin’ slice-and-bake.
Get all the cocoa stuff together.
It’s the holiday concert. Therefore we have the homemade VCS cocoa tradition to maintain. That is all.
Really. Sweat. The. Notes.
Yeah we’re a non-audition open rehearsal choir. No, this doesn’t for a moment mean we don’t take our stuff seriously. We’ve spent the last two weeks seriously going through the music. This week will be no different. Next week we’ll be in high gear too, but by dress rehearsal night people are giggling. Okay maybe that’s just in the back and to the director’s left. Also, the wiseass bass and tenors, around whom no possible one-line zinger can ever not see light of day. (There are people to the director’s right too. But they’re all terribly grown up. Ahem.)
Have a great time.
Really, we come to sing because it’s so joyful. We once did a quick in-house survey. And it was amazing how many people said they sing because it makes them happy. It’s that simple, and that wonderful. And we love to see you all in the audience – especially you regulars who sit in the front row, sway to the music, or close your eyes oblivious to everyone and everything to simply enjoy the wall of rich sound that comes at them. You have no idea how much that feeds us as a choir. So we hope you’ll come to Welcome Yule! Because we sure are looking forward to seeing you!
