Rehearsal Information

April 2020 Performance Sunday 26 April 5:00 p.m.

We began rehearsals for the St Matthew Passion on Tuesday 7 January 2020 at High Church, Hilton (7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m). Tuesday rehearsals continue at the same times at High Church, Hilton until Tuesday 10 March, with a break on Tuesday 18 February. The remaining four Tuesday rehearsals from Tuesday 17 March take place in St Machar's Cathedral, with a two week break during the school Easter holiday (no rehearsals on Tuesdays 7 and 14 April). There will be rehearsals with all participants on the afternoon of Saturday 25 April from 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. (no rehearsal on Sunday 26 April). The performance starts at 5:00 p.m.

Ideally, you should attend all rehearsals but if you miss more than three regular Tuesday rehearsals you will need permission from Musical Director Peter Parfitt before you can sing in the performance. Attendance at the two rehearsals on the weekend of the performance is compulsory.

You can buy a CD or download of your part from Choraline, or follow your part online for free from Cyberbass.
