Random thoughts from a dress rehearsal

Second dress tonight. We're doing a traditional dress rehearsal in concert order, which both unusual for us and has the side effect of half an hour of downtime for the chorus in the middle. Usually they organize things so that all of the choral pieces are together, but this time we had some logistical things that needed to be rehearsed. So now I'm hanging out and listening to the orchestra play Vaughan-Williams' "Fantasia on Greensleeves", which is not a piece I know, but it's pretty so far. Even if the conductor does keep starting and stopping.

Concert tomorrow.

Update: now the orchestra is playing "Waltz of the Flowers" from the Nutcracker. Half the chorus is bobbing their heads or swaying back and forth in their seats. I wonder how many of them even realize it? :)
