Category Archives: Rehearsal Notes

On Tuesday 24th May Peter Fender will be taking the rehearsal in Mark’s absence on holiday.
We’ll be rehearsing the following:
Four items from My Fair Lady:
  • Ascott Gavotte
  • I Could Have Danced
  • I’m Getting Married
  • Poor Professor Higgins
Numbers from Les Mis:
  • At the end of the day
  • Bring Him Home
  • A Heart Full Of Love
  • They Both Reached For The Gun
Sondheim (if time allows):
  • Second medley (from p29)
Please do whatever work you can on the above pieces before Tuesday as that helps enormously to ensure a good rehearsal.

Correction to Mark’s notes

For action: Tenors and Basses
(For information: Sopranos and Altos) 
Unfortunately, a ‘pairing’ error crept into the comprehensive notes that Mark produced for Songs from the Shows. He has corrected them as follows:

West Side Story – Jet Song

22A&B “When you’re a Jet you’re the top cat…” S&T “When you’re a Jet you’re the swingin’-est…”
23Tutti “The Jets are in gear…” A&B “Here come the Jets like a bat out of hell…”
24S&T “Here come the Jets, little world step aside… Tutti “We’re drawin’ the line…”

Sorry for any confusion!
