Just in case you forgot…Christmas is almost here. Well, okay, I guess it’s still about two months out. But you should probably start preparing for it now.

Last year at our Christmas cantata, our music director rented a spotlight, or followspot as it is also known. I had used one before, but it was good to know how to operate a spotlight. It didn’t come with any instructions, we just picked it up from the rental place.

If it is a possibility that your venue might rent a spotlight, study up on them, and make sure you have some time to play with it before the rehearsal.
