Rehearsal Schedule

    Covid – Please read before consulting the schedule

    Caritas Healthy Singing Protocol

    While no structure will be deemed appropriate by all, the board’s intention is to create an environment for rehearsal and performance with Caritas that offers safety for as many people as possible with as little stress as possible.  To that end:

    • Vaccinations are still required to rehearse and perform with Caritas
    • Masks are always welcomed.  They are recommended while singing in rehearsals, but not required.
    • Distance between singers is recommended.  Rehearsal and performance spaces will be arranged to support distanced seating.
    • Caritas recognizes the primacy of adequate ventilation in rehearsal and performance spaces.
    • Anyone displaying any commonly recognized COVID or Cold or Flu symptoms should NOT attend rehearsal or concert. Symptoms include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, and sore throat.

    Recently, PBS showed a wonderful one hour special highlighting the life of legendary American choral director Robert Shaw.  If you missed it, you can view it online at the American Masters website.  For an in-depth view of Robert Shaw at his best, leading one of his Carnegie Hall Choral Workshops, here is the video for his 1997 workshop, preparing and performing Mendelssohn’s Elijah.  It is worth watching.  By the way, if you watch closely you can see Jim Jirak singing in the first row of the chorus about 30 seconds into the video.
