Christian's Rehearsal notes April 1, 2024

        Please go through number 7 and make sure you remember what we did yesterday. Then go back to numbers 1-3 so that we can see what is still there from former rehearsals. I hope I have corrected my scores, so that we can avoid misunderstandings.

Eclipse Humor

Why don't chorale singers have to worry about damaging their eyes during a partial solar eclipse? Because they never look up :-)
