Rehearsals for Rugby's musical Christmas festivities will start this week with Heartland Civic Orchestra rehearsals. The Heartland Strings, directed by Deb Jenkins, will begin practice in the Rugby high school band room at 7:05 p.m., Monday, October 8th. Rehearsal of the Heartland Civic Symphony Orchestra, directed by Tilman Hovland, will follow from 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. The symphony orchestra will rehearse the Christmas section of Handel's Messiah to accompany regional choir members in a community concert on December 2nd.

Deb Jenkins, music program director discussed the choral rehearsals which will begin later in the month of October. "Our choir director, Daryl Wissink, with the help of Tilman Hovland, are making efforts to canvass the greater Rugby community for members to fill a large choral ensemble. Handel's Messiah is familiar to many of our audience members, but is also a great favorite among people who enjoy singing. Even I, with my croaky voice, sang the Messiah during a Christmas long ago, and, like others, own my own copy!"

Jenkins noted that the choir is open to all people high school age and above in Rugby and the surrounding region. " The Messiah is at its most magnificent with a large choir," Jenkins commented. The choir will begin rehearsing on Monday, October 29th from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. through the month of November.

Anyone, high school age and above, with a desire to sing or play their instrument in the community music groups is invited. There are no fees for participation.
