CHORAL SOCIETY FOSTERS LOVE AND JOY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
On a recent weekend, with just a few rehearsals left to go before their big holiday concert, members of the Hilton Head Choral Society are hard at work.
As they practice in the sun-drenched dining room at the Country Club of Hilton Head, their attention seems to shift from Tim Reynolds, their longtime artistic director, to their sheet music. Paying close attention to the sheet music is critical: they’ve marked up every page in pencil to make sure they give Reynolds exactly what he wants from each alto, tenor, soprano, and bass when singing a particular bar of music.
ALAN JORDAN WILL LEAD THE HILTON HEAD SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Northerners often move to Hilton Head Island seeking a slower pace and a step back from life in an urban center. Alan Jordan, who will leave the Delaware Symphony Orchestra at the end of the year to lead the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, has a different perspective.
“This is a step up for me,” he said.
“Godspell” — the popular musical that debuted on Broadway in 1971 — takes the stage Nov. 13-24 at Hilton Head Preparatory School’s Main Street Theatre.
Presented by Main Street Youth Theatre, the musical is based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew, detailing the last days in the life of Jesus Christ and including dramatized versions of several well-known parables.
