A TYPICAL REHEARSAL

This video shows a typical beginning warm up led by our vivacious Director, Jacqueline Rhodes, at a Monday night rehearsal.

This video shows the Huron Valley Community Chorus practicing Angels Sing Gloria during the 5th rehearsal for our Winter 2013 concert.

The chorus, the accompanist, and the director are making plenty of mistakes. As you can see, making mistakes is not an issue and everyone is laughing about it.

That is what rehearsal is for… learning the song and having a good time.
