Weekly Warmup (122216)

Posted December 28, 2016

Hello my singing friends!

Thanks to all who came out for our short practice! We’re taking a break now until January 4, and from Jan 4 until the concert, our practices will go from 7:30 to 9:30. Lots of time to fine tune the details!

JANUARY 4 SECTIONALS
We will be breaking out into sections to work on aspects of some of the pieces. If you haven’t done a sectional before, you’ll love it! Please arrive a bit early to get the full benefit.

CONCERT VOLUNTEERS
A separate email went out a couple of days ago regarding volunteering to help with the concert. Those of you who are new to the choir – this is the best part! Please contact Barb Moldenhauer directly if you would like to help out.

SEEKING REGISTRATION VOLUNTEERS
Still looking for four assistants to help with registration for next session. Let me know if you’re available to help out. It means arriving early for the first three weeks to help staff the registration desks, and to help new members find their sections.

DECEMBER 28 STORM GAME
If you’re singing at the Storm Game, please wear a RED AND/OR WHITE TOP. We will meet at 6 6:15PM in front of Pharma Plus on the main level of Old Quebec Street Mall. Storm Crew Members will be there to meet the choir and take us through the ticketing gate and into the designated area where everyone can leave items they do not wish to bring on the ice with them and also have a chance to organize lines and warm-up. We have a designated area that the choir can feel free to leave items behind and they will be safe during the anthem.

WHAT WE SANG LAST
O Canada
Thinking Out Loud
Queen
Hello

WHAT WE’RE SINGING NEXT
Sectionals, then we will be reviewing the whole line up

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!!
