REHEARSALS HELD ON TUESDAY EVENINGS BEGINNING AUGUST 2ND
7:00PM - 9:00PM


Wilshire Baptist Church
4316 Abrams Road, Dallas, TX 75214

RECORDING WILL TAKE PLACE TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH

REQUIREMENTS FOR SINGERS:

	1)  Good intonation—singing in tune.
	2)  Good blend.
	3)  Little or no vibrato.  Choral vibrato, not solo vibrato.
	4)  Be able to learn notes at home from either provided rehearsal CD or piano so you can come prepared to finish the piece, ergo, sight-singing is helpful but not mandatory.  You will know in advance what to learn for the next rehearsal.1canadianxpills.com buy cheap Prednisone online cheap
	5)  If you can’t be there for all the rehearsals then don’t sign up.  This isn’t church choir.  We only have 6 rehearsals.
	6)  If you have the ability to work with the 2 tunes in the audition materials on the Eveningsong.com website starting at a pitch that fits your voice and sing the notes and rhythms a cappella with accuracy, you will have what it takes to sing with us. 
	7)  I will need to hear your voice to know where you fit in a timber scheme.  This will be done in a quick one on one session for those I have not worked with in the past.  Then there will be a sectional listening for placement.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Rehearsals will be on Tuesday nights from 7 – 9pm in the Choir Suite at Wilshire Baptist Church, 4316 Abrams Rd, Dallas, TX 75214.  We will begin on August 2nd, rehearse for 6 weeks, and record on the 13th of September.

We will provide the music and a rehearsal CD for your part, or you can download MP3’s if you prefer.  You will provide a 3 ring binder, pencil, and an FM radio with ear buds to use for the recording.  The rehearsal pieces will include the orchestra so you will be familiar with the accompaniment as you record.  I will use an FM transmitter to send the cue to your radio.  This will keep the chorus separate from the orchestra in the mix.

My contact information:  
     Email: dfeatherstone@sbcglobal.net  
     Cell no. 214-213-9829.

Last of all I need to emphasize that this is a recording project, not a performance, so getting it right is a must.  Therefore, we need singers that are serious about being at rehearsals and preparing their music.  While performances are very forgiving, microphones catch everything without mercy.

Evening Song David Featherstone Requiem Recording


Friends and family of Evening Song,


The Evening Song Committee came to a unanimous decision regarding the time line for beginning rehearsals (early August 2016), recording date in late October / early November so the CD could be ready for Christmas this year.  Putting everything together this Spring was too soon to be properly prepared.  With this as our goal a performance of the Requiem combined with movements from “Testament” along with other choral pieces and solos would make for a wonderful evening of music with an intermission in the Spring of 2017.


Specific dates will be worked out with plenty of time for those that wish to participate to make it fit their schedules.  Rehearsal CD’s with the recorded orchestra and click track will be available for each vocal part so singers will be familiar with the accompaniment for recording.  Those that have not been involved with this system of recording will need to have an FM radio with earbuds to hear the accompaniment while recording.


Auditions will be held to find and then place voices.  The emphasis will be on quality of singers not quantity.  In recording we can always stack voices to get the numbers for the sound.


If you wish to be included in the project or wish to be removed from the list please reply to this post so we can respond accordingly.


I have attached the vocal score and MP3 for the Sanctus for you to check out.


All my best,

David Featherstone

THIS IS AN EVENING SONG CHORAL CALL!!!!!



Dear Members Past and Present, Patrons and Friends of Evening Song.

HE HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!!.  During this time of hiatus our Artistic Director David Featherstone has been hard at work composing his new dream....a Requiem and it is COMPLETED.

To complete this dream, as we did with "Testament," Dave would like to record his Requiem and then introduce it to the public via a concert in the Fall of 2016 or Spring of 2017.  Dave leaves November 9th for Indiana to record the orchestration and the plan is to start rehearsals for the choral recording just after the first of the year in January 2016.  The recording will then take place in late April with the goal to have it recorded, mixed and ready to release August 1, 2016 and use it as a springboard for a concert introducing the Requiem in the Fall of 2016 or Spring of 2017.

In order for this Dream to become a reality, we will need some singers.....LOTS of singers.  The dream would be a choir of 80 to100 singers for both the recording and especially for the concert.  So with that being said, we are calling all members past and present to join us to make Dave's Dream a reality.

If interested, please contact me or David Featherstone via emails at juliepru29@gmail.com and/or dfeatherstone@sbcglobal.net and with these contacts we will put together an email roster of those interested in participating.  Not a singer, not a problem, we will have lots to do behind the scenes and will need help executing Dave's plan.  Also, put the word out to other singers, church choirs, etc. and let them know of this new and exciting opportunity to bring to life a new major choral work.

I will keep this newsletter list abreast of any and all new developments as it comes available to me.  I hope this newsletter finds you all well and I look forward to hearing from you!

Blessings,
Julianne Prudhomme
Past President
Evening Song Choir
