Inviting all singers!

We are inviting all singers to be part of the Gilbert & Sullivan pit choir for Iolanthe, May 27 – 29th, 2016

What is a pit choir, you might ask ? The pit choir for the The Savoy Society of Ottawa sings offstage selected Iolanthe chorus songs in bass, tenor, alto or soprano parts.   The bonus: a chance to enjoy Gilbert & Sullivan’s funny observations about life and Parliament, up close and personal – and realize they are still true today!

Rehearsal commitments: Two group rehearsals with our musical director, Gloria-Jean Nagy at her Nepean studio.  The Iolanthe musical score and midi files will be provided to you for individual practice.  No need to memorize the words or music.

Show week performance commitments: Dress rehearsal (Thursday May 26 evening) and three (3) shows* on Friday, evening Saturday evening, Sunday afternoon. * a partial show commitment is an option

Interested?  For more info, or to sign up, contact Gloria-Jean for more information at gloriajeannagy@gmail.com  or (613) 829-4402.
