[Darkwood-SCA] Choir "rehearsal" and warm-up at Purg

Hi, folks. Here's The Plan:
Some of you have expressed a strong desire to get in some practice
Friday afternoon or evening. Let's use the Darkwood sunshade as a place
to meet, but I'd like to do actual rehearsing in some other part of the
site, away from people. This is for two reasons: (1) to try to keep
this piece, as much possible, a surprise for Saturday; and (2) at least
some of the time we may be using Na'arah's electronic keyboard, and I
would rather not interject such a blatantly non-Period note (pun
intended) into the encampment. Anyway, we'll all be more-or-less
hanging around the Darkwood encampment in the afternoon and evening, so
we can work out time & place for our little rehearsal.
We will gather at the Darkwood camp at 10:00 AM Saturday along with
participating members of the West Kingdom Choir for warm-up and a
run-though of the piece. Hopefully we can do this off to the side a
bit, but we will have to decide that when the time comes. At that time,
we will also briefly practice stopping in the middle of the piece, at a
signal from myself.
I will also, by then, have directions for you about how we are to
position ourselves at court in readiness for our performance.
We will be performing the entire piece for Erich, Liesl & Friends
sometime Saturday evening -- but exactly when is something we will
probably have to play by ear (yes, another pun). Alessandro has
tentatively suggested 9 PM to the WK Choir, which is probably a fair guess.
See you this weekend.
