Useful Information for Choir Members


Arrangements for the rehearsal and concert on Saturday December 15th are as follows:

Please arrive at Stokesley Parish Church no later than 1.50 for a prompt start at 2pm. Please enter the church quietly as the young people will already be rehearsing. If you have volunteered to supply mince pies please bring them to the rehearsal.
We should hopefully finish by 4.15, as long as we’re well-behaved!
Dress: Ladies – black top and long black skirt or trousers, or long black dress, plus festive sparkles. Men – white shirt, black trousers, colourful bow tie.

Please note that this concert starts at 7pm so you should arrive no later than 6.45. The front entrance gets quite congested so please leave plenty of time. Please no large handbags/water bottles on the stage, thanks. All music (including Carol books) in black folders.

After the concert
Help with removing the staging will be very welcome. We carry straight on with rehearsals for the joint concert on April 27th (Brahms’ Requiem/Vivaldi Gloria) on Monday 7th January. If you have your own score of this music (Brahms in English, Vivaldi  Malipiero edition), please bring them. Don’t worry if you don’t have your own copy as we can supply them.
