Hi, Awesome Holst Families!
Tonight I talked to our Holst singers about two solo opportunities for treble singers in Holst. They are coming up very quickly, so I'm emailing you as well so you can discuss at home. Singers got an information sheet that I will also attach to this email.
SOLO #1: RUTTER MAGNIFICAT
To be sung with the Madison Symphony Orchestra and Chorus on the MSO Christmas concert that many Holst boys are already participating in.
SOLO #2: BERNSTEIN CHICHESTER PSALMS
To be sung with UW-Madison Choral Union.
December 8 rehearsal (7pm); December 9 performance (8pm)
One rehearsal on a Wednesday prior, 4:30pm
We encouraged singers to look at the music, spend some time (there are YouTube videos linked at the bottom of this email) learning what they can, and to try if they are interested. These are incredible opportunities (and there will be even more next semester).
