GCS WEEKLY WARMUP (120316)

Posted December 6, 2016

Hello my singing friends!

Is anyone else starting to get ear worms? I woke up this morning humming Red Red Rose. Makes me wonder what kind of dreams I’m having!

CONCERT GUEST PERFORMERS: If you know of a small group that would like to perform at our next concert for 15 minutes, we would love to hear from you.

CONCERT VOLUNTEERS: Barb Moldenhauer has graciously agreed to act as Concert Organizer again, but she’s going to need help! If you would like to pitch in, please contact Barb at moldenhauer.b@sympatico.ca.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

DECEMBER 11, 7:00PM: The Choir of Trinity United Church, directed by Andrea LeBlanc, invite you and your family to come and enjoy the original Christmas Story in song. This is a wonderful annual event of seasonal music to welcome the Christmas Season! Guelph United Performers – Community Children’s Choir will be participating as well. Holiday Treats to follow the Performance. No tickets – freewill offering only.

DECEMBER 17 4:30-7:00PM: OPEN HOUSE FOR GCS AT MARTINA’S HOUSE. Martina has graciously agreed to open her home so that we can all get together for a little social.

Tickets for the Messiah are $35 each or $30 each for 4 tickets or more.

DECEMBER 28 STORM GAME UPDATE: We will have the sign-up sheet at the front again this coming Wednesday. If you can’t be there this Wednesday but would like to sign up, please send me an email with your name and section, and how many tickets you would like to buy for friends and family.

We will set aside a block of tickets, so we need to know how many you want. The tickets are $17.50 each. You can call the Storm box office and pay for them yourself with your credit card.

O CANADA UPDATE: We’re singing it all in English now. If you’re singing at the Storm Game, please wear a RED TOP.

Hello
*** Nella Fantasia small group please stay for 10-15 minutes after choir***

PLEASE DO NOT WEAR SCENTS TO PRACTICE: A favour: I have been asked to remind you that some of us are very sensitive to perfumes. One soprano in particular gets quite ill when she is near strong perfume. It would be a shame if she had to quit as a result. Please don’t wear scents to our practices. Thank you!!
