Update – Final NZ Rehearsal Weekend!

Hello DCS! It’s certainly been a very busy time for everyone as school year and performance seasons wind down, and I’m looking forward to spending some quality time making music with you all!

We also know everyone is starting to get excited aka nervous aka anxious about all of the travel details- a travel FAQ page will be posted on Friday, May 31 with details about baggage, packing suggestions, etc.

THIS POST HAS ACTION ITEMS! Please read all the way to the end!

Schedule Details!

Friday, May 31: 7:00 – 10:00 pm

Saturday June 1: 9:00 am – 11:45 am // LUNCH-SECTIONALS // 2:30 -5:15 pm, BBQ to follow (details below)

Sunday, June 2: (Solo/Small Ensemble Coachings from 9:00- 9:50 am) 10:00 am – 12:00 pm // LUNCH // 1:30 – 3:30 pm // 5:30 pm call time at St. Helena Church. Bring your performance attire for this concert!

The concert at St. Helena Church (602 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809) starts at 6:30 pm on Sunday evening. Invite your friends and family! No tickets required, but WE WILL be taking a free-will donation. Tell people to bring lots of cash! 🙂 The church seats 800 so there should be no problem getting a seat.

We’re also working on a livestream for the concert. Will likely be YouTube live. Stay tuned for details.

All rehearsals will be in Amy E. DuPont Music Building, Room 118, which is on the lowest level of AED. The best parking option is the Center for the Arts Parking Garage; you’ll want to have the Passport Parking app to pay for parking across the UD campus.

Party Details!

Thanks to Paul and Carol for hosting at their newly renovated home and backyard! Their address is: 102 Lewisville Road, Lincoln University, PA 19352

The Heads are providing burgers (meat and veggie), buns, condiments, and sodas. Please sign-up to bring something to share, and feel free to BYOB! (PDH will provide some B, but probably not enough.)

Important notes about BYOB!

  • If you’re not 21, remember that we’re still in America. Be smart.
  • The road to and from the Heads’ is very windy, very hilly, and very well watched by police. Again, be smart!!

Music Details!

Please review the repertoire page and be sure that you have all of the necessary scores downloaded and/or printed before rehearsal. In case you missed previous updates, the competition sets are listed out in individual folders, and the “Category 22_Spirituals (NEW SET)” has the (you guessed it) new scores for the final version of the spirituals set. We’ve added a “New Zealand Music” doc to that repertoire page for clarity, but please let me know if there’s any additional confusion!

Final Details!

We want you to be able to eat dinner on July 3 on us! Please complete the meal request form ASAP.

We also want to have fun! Please complete the “Guess Who” form ASAP.

That’s it! Questions? Comment below or email me at
