Rehearsal Requirements

Below you will find a youtube recording of Arneson's Magnificat. That is the major work we will be learning gradually throughout the year. We will break this beautiful work up into chunks throughout out the course of the year so you are not overwhelmed. Rehearsals will be sporadic and minimal assuming you have done preparation at home.

Rehearsals in the Fall will tentatively be held on Fridays from 4:00 to 5:30 on days that are NOT football games or other major school events.

We will be making tracks for you this summer and may have a grand read through before school starts to get a good feel for the piece. This is going to be glorious!
