The Chorale has been waiting an excruciatingly long three weeks to see each other again since our last performance, so there were many hugs to go around as we all arrived at the Coshocton Presbyterian Church this afternoon. Though we were sad to have to cancel our concert last week and postpone our weekend together due to weather, the right decision was made and we are still glad to still be able to spend some time with most of the Chorale. We started our day of rehearsal warming up our voices together, then moved on to part and sectional rehearsals for a good bit of the day. The girls finished one of their rehearsals early, so we were able to enjoy a long break with some snacks and extra fellowship time.
The day went by quickly and dinnertime soon rolled around with tacos galore! As we devoured the delicious meal prepared by wonderful volunteers, we sat at our assigned tables and enjoyed having conversations with others that we may not usually have the chance to talk to. Staff member Matt Downing even coordinated a Mad-Libs creation with the entire group and provided entertainment by reading us the final product.
As a break between rehearsals, we also watched several videos as a group today, some of which demonstrated what not to do while singing, such as a particular recording of “This Is My Father’s World” that we found very amusing.
