Important note for Amici members
re 13th December
Because there are so many other events being held on Saturday 13 th December I have changed the time of our performance from 19.30 to 15.00. Venue remains the same, the very beautiful St Mary's Church, Chilham. This will mean that we will rehearse slightly earlier than planned but means that no one will have a clash, and none of your friends can suggest it is not possible to attend!
In addition as you are singing so wonderfully I am adding Vivaldi Gloria to the programme. We have borrowed sets of copies from the library and we will begin rehearsing, reviving or recollecting Gloria on November 5.
Thus the details of the concert which will be on tickets and posters from the end of this week will be:

Loris recently sent Roshna this lovely piece on what singing means to her.We all love singing, but Loris (a returning singer) writes very movingly in her blog about her recent times with Cantata. You can click here to see the whole article from her blog.
Such a wonderful rehearsal again yesterday.....congratulations on learning so patiently but quickly with great energy. What a piece! Such a privilege to sing this music.
Next week October 22 rehearsal schedule (slightly shorter to allow for Canterbury Festival events)
17.30. Warm ups
17.40 No 7 Page 30 Bach: Fecit Potentiam
18.20 No 9 Page 27 Vivaldi: Gloria
18.45. Morten Lauridsen
19.00. Revision Bach Magnificat anima mea, Omnes generationes, Sicut Locutus est
No rehearsal October 29
Rehearsal November 5... watch out for fireworks at this rehearsal!
Please ensure your diaries are free for Thursday December 4 when we will perform Vivaldi Magnificat in The Beaney. We had an attentive audience last evening and this could be a very useful performance in advance of December 13 and cement our relationship with The Beaney in the heart of the city.
Should you have any friends wishing to join us this will be the last opportunity this term to do so...no audition...a great welcome...to a great choir!! Spread the word amici!
Dear Amici Members
I apologise to those of you who have not yet received the Bach and Vivaldi scores that you ordered. This is because I temporarily managed to lose some names while compiling a list for Maggie. We also had more new members turning up than expected, which was wonderful.
We have now run out of copies and I would ask those of you who have not yet got copies to purchase them direct from Crowthers in Canterbury. If you say that you are a member of Amici you will get the discount.
Kind a Regards
Please go to Membership Pages / Resources for details about the practice tracks that are available for this term's music.
