Dress rehearsal length
Date: December 19, 2013
The community choir I conduct has been discussing the length of pre-concert dress rehearsals. The need for adequate time to rehearse the entire concert repertoire in our performance venue on concert week, including extra time on any pieces with instrumentalists (who come to only one rehearsal), is offset by the discomfort of choir members of a variety of ages, some of whom find it tiring to have a longer-than-usual rehearsal.
How much time do you generally allow for your final rehearsal(s) on concert week? Do you do one long rehearsal, split it up into two rehearsals, or some other arrangement?
Any feedback you can share would be much appreciated.
