Oratorio Chorale to hold open rehearsal Feb. 24

The Oratorio Chorale invites singers to join the group for an open rehearsal on Sunday, Feb. 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Mid Coast Presbyterian Church, 84 Main St., Topsham.

The chorale is rehearsing for concerts on March 9 and 10, which include Dvorak’s "Mass in D," Britten’s "Rejoice in the Lamb," Randall Thompson’s "Alleluia" and Ivor Davies’ "Prayers from the Ark."

Open rehearsal gives people who are interested in joining the Oratorio Chorale the opportunity to learn more about the Chorale, and to obtain information about auditions for the 2013-2014 season. Singers would sit with others of their own voice part, and sing or listen, as they choose. All voice parts are welcome.

The Oratorio Chorale is an auditioned chorus of about 40 singers which performs three programs a year at venues in Topsham, Bath, Brunswick, Freeport, Portland and Falmouth. Chorale members come from 20 different communities in the midcoast region.

For more information about the open rehearsal, contact Rachael Bairstow at 329-5708, or rlbairstow@live.com. To learn more about the Chorale and its programs, visit www.oratoriochorale.org.
