Hey everyone – just a reminder to come to rehearsal early on Tuesday (like 7 pm would be ideal). We will do a very short warmup and then launch into rehearsal. We will be rehearsing standing up, for the most part, except for those of you who can’t, so we don’t need all the chairs set up. Please stow your things away on the bench behind where the sopranos normally sit.
