We worked on the final three pages of Act 2 we've yet to cover - p.57 to fig 107!! And that's all the main chorus material covered! So it's consolidation from now on. Bravo everyone!
After the break, returned to the Bell Chorus (and despite the conductors best efforts to put everyone off!), everyone did really well with the memorising! We'll obviously be returning regularly to this material to make sure it's really second nature come July.
We finished by putting some of the ideas we'd covered in the movement exercise at the top of the rehearsal, together with earlier work we've done with Lissa, and the music of course and sang through teh chorus a few more times without the score.
