Be to do something


Senior Member
If I have something planned for example a rehearsal with a band on Sunday and its say Thursday can I say that
"I'm to have a rehearsal on Sunday"? Does that make sense? Does it sound good?
Is it the similar in meaning to "I have a rehearsal planned on Sunday"?

Thank you!!!

    Whilst the structure is possible, we wouldn’t use it for a rehearsal. It is a passive form, which we use when something is being done to us rather than when we are doing something. I’m to have an operation on Sunday, for example.
