Schedule of Rehearsals
Rehearsals are regularly held every Monday evening, from September through the end of May from 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm in the FSG Hall at Temple Beth Sholom, Flushing, NY.
Our rehearsals are to learn the music and to interpret it. You will be coached in foreign languages and English pronunciation at rehearsals. Singers are expected to review the music during the course of the week. Members are also directed to cloud-based rehearsal tracks which can help them through their personal weekly rehearsal.
