What follows is a rough schedule for the day. We will try to keep to these times so any audience know when to come in. There will be extra breaks during the rehearsal periods but I am not going to schedule them, rather I will leave it to the judgement of the conductors as and when to take breaks.
The roll calls will happen before each of the performance run-throughs. Half of the 'lost to cancer' roll call will be read out before the Ives Requiem, the other half before the Rutter. The survivors roll call will be read out before the Verdi.
