Opus 24 Rehearsals

Opus 24 rehearses once a week on Tuesday nights from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, and we have a couple extra rehearsals the week before a performance at our concert site. When we start up in early September the fall concert seems far away, but the way we look at it, it is only 12 rehearsals away. It is a pleasure to rehearse with such talented singers, who all seem to be re-energized after a long day.

Opus 24 has rehearsed in three locations since we began in 1991. When we first organized we practiced in the sanctuary of Decatur’s St. John’s Episcopal Church. We also rehearsed for a time in Decatur First Presbyterian Church in their tiered choir room. The site where we have rehearsed the longest has been at Decatur First Lutheran Church, where our director has an office and which is more convenient for storage.

Of Thee I Sing

Opus Spring 2014 ConcertThis concert features music about America, sharing our rich and varied cultures. Copland, Barber, Arlen, Thompson, Hall and many others will appear as we share America through song. There will also be music from composers from other lands with music that has shaped us as a nation. It is also the 200th anniversary of our National Anthem which will be sung by all at the beginning of the concert. So, along with baseball, Grandma and apple pie, come share who we are through choral music.
