I am delighted to report that RCS members have been invited to sing in New York on Mon Jan 15th 2018. This invitation came out of the blue from DCINY (see http://www.dciny.org/).
The main points are:
The concert is Mon Jan 15 2018 at Carnegie Hall. The Armed Man and a premiere of a new Karl Jenkins work - Sing - The Music was Given. There are several choirs involved.
Fly out Fri 12 Jan 2018, rehearse half day Sat and Sun with Karl Jenkins (rest of day and evenings free).
Monday rehearsal, concert, post concert reception.
Tuesday fly home.
There is no minimum number of RCS choir members needed to make it happen. Maximum about 50 to 70.
DCINY will arrange travel and hotels, and charge a fee.
Click below for the travel and other costs.Total cost likely to be around £1600 to £2000 pp, depending how many people are prepared to share a room!
This will be a complete extra to regular RCS activity and will be funded by those going, not by RCS.
John has kindly agreed to do some rehearsals for the new piece, (and those participating would need to cover his fee), but he does not plan to come on the trip.
I am keen to go, and am happy to coordinate things.
But we were the final choir invited and time is very tight.
If you want to join me in this venture - PLEASE BOOK YOUR PLACE JUST BY SENDING ME AN EMAIL BEFORE TUES SEPT 5TH 2017.
