News about the Fall Season and Messiah Rehearsals

This is an invitation — come sing with the Greensboro Oratorio Singers during our 2014-2015 season!

Rehearsals for this fall will begin Monday, October 13, 2014 at 7:30 pm; registration will start at 7:00 pm in the choir room at Friendly Avenue Baptist Church, 4800 W. Friendly Avenue, Greensboro, (corner of Friendly and Westridge). Membership is open to all interested singers who are willing to participate in the regular rehearsals and concerts. No auditions are required. We will rehearse Monday October 13 and Monday October 20. Our two fall performances will be Sunday, October 26 at 4:00 at the River Landing at Sandy Ridge Retirement Center, and on Sunday November 2 at 7:00 pm at Friends Home West. We will be singing Regina Coeli by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Alleluia by Randall Thompson; and “Pie Jesu” from Requiem by Andrew Lloyd Webber, all selections which were part of our spring concert.

If you are unable to sing with us for the fall season, but are planning to sing for this year’s 61th presentation of Handel’s Messiah, rehearsals for the Messiah will be on November 10, 17, and 24, and December 1 and 8 at Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church, at the corner of Battleground Avenue and Pisgah Church Road. Registration begins at 7:00 pm and rehearsal begins promptly at 7:30 pm. The registration fee, again this year, will be $25; scores will be available for purchase at our cost of $10. The dress rehearsal is scheduled for Tuesday, December 16, and the performance will be on  Thursday, December 18, 7:00.
