We know it’s only the middle of November, and most people haven’t even thought about putting up their Christmas lights or Christmas tree yet, but here at Sweet Scarlet headquarters, the countdown is on! We’ve been preparing for the holidays for MONTHS!
Our preparation for the holiday season usually begins in June or July, when we start scouting out new Christmas music for our annual holiday show, Winter Songs. In August, we normally hold our annual Christmas “listening party,” where we decide as a group which new songs to tackle for our holiday repertoire. And as soon as we have the new music in our hands, we start rehearsing!
These days, most of our new songs are in pretty good shape – but now it’s time to put the show together! That happens in our weekly rehearsals, and also in a day-long rehearsal “retreat” at the end of November. Here, we finetune our vocals, rehearse our choreography until it’s second nature, and have a ton of fun together, making sure that this year’s show will really sparkle!
If you haven’t already purchased your tickets for Winter Songs this year, you can do so on Eventbrite. We’d love to see you there! We promise, it’s going to be a show full of holiday cheer, beautiful harmonies, and flawless “choral”ography (fingers crossed!).
Also, don’t miss our weekly contest on Facebook, where we’re giving away two free tickets every Sunday, if you can guess the location of this week’s #WheresSweetScarlet post!
