Rehearsal will be in the hall tonight. Look for the entrance by the scaffolding on the south end of the church. It is to the left when directly facing the main entrance.

Also, there is a larger event happening at Old St Pats at 7 pm. This may affect available free parking spots at the new parking garage.

Here are some of the key details that we can share for tonight's rehearsal. (We will never share all details here for everyone's safety and security, since this is a publicly accessible website).

Arrival Time: 5:50 pm

There is a locker room available for you to lock valuables with your own lock, but it will be easier if minimized the amount of valuables that you bring to the Auditorium if possible. We'll be escorted to the rehearsal room which should be in the same location as last year (I suspect the top most floor).

After a quick warm up, we'll then make our way to the stage in our assigned seats and start our work with the orchestra. We will likely take a short break in between acts, but please be prepared to stay focused during rehearsal since time is limited.

Don't forget if you have any questions, you can email them here: thchicagochoir@gmail.com and put the text [Question] in the subject area, and we'll try to answer all questions ASAP.

It's been a cold winter, but we're about to bring the HOT back to our great city!

There's a lot of information and details to keep track of, and we'll update the calendar and post information that is safe to share publicly.

However, there are some details that can only be shared privately. For these, if you have any questions, you can just email the website at thchicagochoir@gmail.com. Use this text in your subject [Question], and you will get a response within a couple of hours.

Also, we'll be taking pictures throughout the week that we'll make sure to share on Facebook and Google. Please let us know as we're taking pictures if you don't want your picture publicly shared.

We're looking forward to a great week ahead!
