Show vs Rehearsal

 

image of an iceburg indicating that "The Show" is the top sixth and "The Rehearsal" is the remaining 5/6th.
So often what the audience sees in a concert is a small fraction of what went into that performance. I found this image on conductor Richard Sparks‘ blog. It’s an eloquent description for choral concerts as well as theatre. Right now we are in the thick mass of this image, getting ready for our November 22 season opener, Magnificat, with Sonja Gustafson. A hundred balls are in the air, which will all come together beautifully on concert night. That’s magic.
