I am in men's chorale here at Fullerton College and our concert date of December 6th is creeping up on us fast. We started learning our music after veterans day and we only have 4 rehearsals left. It can be stressful at times. In the music we have to do everything from singing in latin, to following complex time signatures.
On the day of the concert we will be singing with all the choirs of Fullerton College which include, Women's Chorale and Chamber Singers. One of the biggest challenges of the upcoming concert will be singing with them. We don't get to rehearse with them until the day of the concert, so we have to have our own parts perfect in order to line up with the rest of the vocalists.
We are performing Christmas music because it is our winter concert. We have a lot of interesting arrangements of holiday songs. We're doing all styles of music ranging from a Dave Brubeck influenced rendition of "We Three Kings", to a slow and beautiful arrangement of "O Come, All Ye Faithful".
Preparing for a concert can be stressful, but in the end after you put on a great show and please your audience it is a rewarding feeling. I encourage you to come support the Choirs of Fullerton College on December 6th in the Fullerton college campus theater. Tickets are ten dollars for adults, five for kids, and seven for students and seniors. For more information on buying tickets you can click here here. I hope to see you there.
