Hello Singers and Parents: We seemed to have a lot of bad weather on Tuesdays this winter. In addition to this, our older choirs are singing at three concerts, rather than one. Dale and I have decided that we will hold a practice on March 14th to catch up. We will not need the Cherubs or the Juniors.
Their music is much simpler and they have brains that soak up music quickly. We are scheduling LONGER rehearsals for the three older choirs. The Intermediate choir will be from 5 to 6:30 (so please come an hour earlier), the Performance choir is from 6 to 7:30 (so please come an hour earlier), and the Seniors are from 7:30 to 9 (please come half an hour earlier). As you can see there are some times that overlap, so that we can practice songs where more than one choir division is singing together.
We need to know which kids are singing at the following events for seating arrangement, T-shirt purchases and to arrange for tickets to purchase. Please fill out the form attached, print it and return it to Magdalena or Joanna, so that we know who is attending the various concerts and rehearsals.
Georgetown Children’s Chorus Songs for Canada Concert, Sunday April 9 (1pm and 4pm)
All 110 members of our choir are singing at these two concerts. Tickets will be on sale the last 4 four practices, including the dress rehearsal at the JET, which is on Tuesday April 4th. Concert dress: black pants and shoes, red t- Shirt (provided). We are booking an extra rehearsal for Intermediate, Performance and Senior choirs at the Old Armoury on March 25 from 9am until 11am, followed by a France trip “meet and greet” afterwards. More on this closer to the date, since I haven’t booked the Armoury yet.
