April 5, 2017 Rehearsal - part 1

The first half of the rehearsal was divided between rehearsing Locus Iste (once in sections, once mixed) and then performing it twice again, the same ways, while a professional sound engineer recorded an audition tape for the 2018 tour.

After Locus Iste, Lynne began walking the chorus through the score for Guys and Dolls (45:48 approximately).  That continued to the end of the first half.
