Rehearsal Schdeule for Christmas Concert 2009

Dear members of UK-Japan Choir (London members),

Greetings from Leicestershire.
We hope you are keeping well, and enjoying fairly warm summer this year!

This is a first notice regarding
Christmas Concert of Handel Messiah
planned on Saturday 12th December
at St John’s Wood Church in London as previous years.
It is accompanied by organ with some instrumentalists and international soloists
from Japan and Britain.

London rehearsal details have just been finalised and from this September
the rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings, not Wednesday as were
the previous several years.
This autumn we use a room at Nippon Club off Piccadilly Circus for the first time,
and as it is handy from people coming from any direction, it has a salon
(kind of a small room with tables and chairs with self service drinks, etc.)
which may be useful for people bringing something to eat before the rehearsal.
There are machines with tea/coffee in the salon too.
It is a safe and cosy environment in which to have rehearsals.

There is a joint rehearsal with Cambridge and Leicester members
in Leicester in November on 15th and also on December 6th, if you can make it.
There is an invitation to sing Faure’s Requiem at Leicester Cathedral
with the Cathedral Choir on Sunday 8th November,
if you know the music or would like to learn at home and join on the day.
