Christmas 2018 - Concert timings and Dates

Friday 14th - 7.00 pm “Dress” rehearsal - Stonefields School 81 Tihi Street (No need to wear your concert outfit to this rehearsal). We’ll finish as close to 9.30pm as we can.

Saturday 15th - Concert day schedule

Dress code - Black with some tinsel - no antlers or headwear

1.30pm:  We will need a set-up team to help bring the risers onto the stage.  

2pm:  VCCV and SFX on the stage (please arrive warmed up)

2.10pm:  Everybody else (except Hobsonville) should be in the auditorium, ready to sing.  Please come in quietly so as not to disturb those already rehearsing.

3.00pm:  Hobsonville please be in the auditorium, warmed up and ready to join in when called to the stage.  

There will be very short breaks during the afternoon (while individual choirs are rehearsing) when you will be able to eat snacks, but I suggest nothing too sugary, and please bring water to drink (you can’t take bottles onstage).  

There will only be a short break of 25 minutes between the rehearsal and the concert, so please arrive dressed, made up and ready.
