Programming help: In Windsor Forest
Date: April 29, 2014
I'm creating an hour-long concert based around Vaughan Williams' "In Windsor Forest" and I'm not sure what else to program with it. I've thought of things like "Serenade to Music" or the Three Shakespeare Songs, but I'm not sure the group I will have would be able to pull these off in the time we'll have available to prep. The rest of the program doesn't necessarily need to use the orchestra and could include acappella pieces, but they should not have too much divisi as if I do any acappella, it would likely be with a subset of the whole group and can't divide too much.
The whole group will probably (hopefully) be around 40 voices, probably more women than men, adult amateur group. We'll probably only have about eight weeks to prepare, with rehearsal once a week. Anyone have any suggestions? Anything is welcome!
