And so it begins

Last night was the first rehearsal for Da Camera Singers. A few notes about what to expect this year
  • It is our 50th anniversary season!
  • We have six individual programs to prepare, three on our own season, and three on other organizations' seasons.
  • Our theme this year is "Community Collaborations", and we are exploring our relationships with other choral, composing, and instrumental organizations. We will "team up" with Tonus Vivus (Composer's society) Alberta Baroque Ensemble, Pro Coro Canada, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Edmonton Young Voices (Formerly the Edmonton Children's Choir) and Spiritus Chamber Choir.
  • Of the "BIG" works we will perform this year, they include Poulenc Gloria, Orff's Carmina Burana and Rachmaninoff's All Night Vigil.
  • We are launching a new web page (soon!)
  • I have TWELVE Basses! (but only 5 tenors)
Ready ... set ... GO!

I think with five tenors you're doing pretty well! But twelve basses! Yikes! :-)
