Lent Concert 2022: Music & Rehearsal Tracks

The date, time and location are all PRELIMINARY at the moment, but hopefully we will be at Potters Street Baptist Church on Sunday 13th March from 2pm for a concert at 3:30pm.

Dress code is black below the waist (trousers or skirts) and white above the waist (shirts or blouses). Red scarfs for the women and red bow ties for the men will be provided. As will black folders to hold our music, if you don't already have one.

REHEARSAL TRACKS can be found HERE. There are not many at the moment, this will change as we get closer to the concert so be sure to check regularly. There will be tracks for each part (either Soprano, Alto & Men or Women & Men). For music with only one part there will still be a Men's & Women's rehearsal track, the Women's part will be as written, the Men's part will be down an octave.

SHEET MUSIC can also be found HERE if it exists. I cannot promise sheet music for all our pieces, but there will be for some. Big caveat, I can't guarantee I haven't made a mistake in creating these. So if you are happy with the music supplied by Sara, keep using it!
