Term 3 begins

As it says on the new Calendar page, tonight is the first rehearsal of Term 3. New members are welcome to along to any rehearsal, but the beginning of Term 1 or Term 3 is a particularly good time as we’re typically starting on a new programme of music.

For this half-year, Barbara has said that we will learn and perform selected movements from Brahms’ German Requiem (the English translation). The choir has never performed this before, to my knowledge, but we spent time on it in 2015 because quite a few choir members were planning to perform it at the NZCF May Workshop that year. I wrote a blog post on it at the time.
