Nosferatu Rehearsals and Performance

9th Street Singers, here is the Nosferatu rehearsal schedule.  All rehearsals are required. If you have an unbreakable conflict, please see me!
  • September 22nd (My Birthday. I like cake.) 10-12:30 and 3:45-5pm. King Center Recital Hall
  • September 23rd 10-12 and 1-2. King Center Recital Hall
  • September 24th 9:15-11:45 (Stop/Start) and 2-3:30 (Dress Rehearsal)
  • September 24th PERFORMANCE 4pm. Concert Hall
ASSIGNMENT: Please head to the bottom of the blog to the Video Bar and watch Nosferatu. Donald Soisin, our silent film composer, likes the version below (Classic Horror) Nosferatu by XaroTheAlmighty. We will not be recreating this score, ok? The film is in 14 segments, and is around an hour and 15 minutes long.

    All Perform Classes

    All Perform Classes are a new requirement for this semester. You are required to attend at least one of these, and I strongly encourage you to sing. You are here to sing! Please sing. These classes are for all instrumental/voice students enrolled in Applied Lessons. Here are the dates:
    • Wednesday, October 5th 11-12:30, King Center Recital Hall
    • Wednesday, October 19th, 11-12:30, King Center Recital Hall
    • Thursday, October 26th, 2-3:30, King Center Recital Hall
    • Thursday, November 10th, 2-3:30, King Center Recital Hall
    Sign up sheets will be on the board across from AR 177. I will be there on BOTH WEDNESDAY dates and will be happy to accompany you. Bring your music.

    Voice Studio Classes

    Please remember that Voice Studio Classes are required of everyone taking Applied Voice with me; I also expect you to have your music with you and be ready to sing every class. I know it's a pain. I know it's kind of scary. The point is, you can't learn how to perform in front of your peers without, well, performing in front of your peers. Not to mention the fact that you are performance majors. Which means you like to perform, right? Right.
    • September 16th, 2:30-4pm. King Center Recital Hall
    • October 14th, 2:30-3:30pm. King Center Recital Hall
    • November 18th, 1-2pm. King Center Recital Hall
