Be a stand in soloist for the spring concert

We have four professional soloists coming for the spring concert but I would like to have back up soloists 1)in case the soloist is ill and 2)To sing with the orchestra on our first orchestra rehearsal when our soloists will not be there (we are going to have two orchestra rehearsals prior to April 26 - Tuesday at Memorial Hall and Saturday at Magnificat)  This is a chance for you to learn a solo, increase your musical skills and get to do it with the orchestra (at the Tuesday rehearsal)...also to be ready as a stand in for an ill soloist.  We have so many soloists in the Chorale so several of you should take this opportunity.
