GCS Concert Info from Barb Moldenhauer

Hi Everyone:

Just a few notes for everyone before the Concert on Saturday evening. I will still have tickets available for sale ($10) at our rehearsal on Wednesday, January 18. If you have tickets outstanding to be sold, please turn in any money you have collected this coming Wednesday, January 18. Please return any unsold tickets as well. Remember, tickets at the door are $15.

For an event of this size, Trinity provides two members from the congregation to be available in the church building. Ron McMillan and John Bye are both good friends of mine. They will look after running the elevators for all guests who need them. Please feel free to chat with them and ask any questions about the building you may have. That’s what they are there for! Ron will also help us move the risers on the stage.

The most asked question is always about bathrooms. There are two on the auditorium level. One on the main level, in the coat rack area. And, one on the mezzanine level.

There are handicapped parking spots in the parking lot off Stevenson Street. The first 2 or 3 spots are reserved for handicapped, and as well there are a couple at the back of the auditorium. There is a ramp going into the church at the back of the auditorium, and also a new ramp going into the side door off the parking lot. The ramp at the back involves two elevators; the ramp at the side door, only one.

I am suggesting choir members park across the street at Edward Johnson School when they arrive for 5:30 p.m. This will leave the Trinity parking lot and adjacent streets (Balsam & Pine) available for guests. If the parking space at the school appears full, there is additional parking available at the back. There is a traffic light in front of the school to ensure everyone crosses Stevenson Street safely.

I will lock purses in the Chalmers Room during the duration of the Concert. This is the room immediately inside the side door from the parking lot (same as at last concert). The door will be opened at, say, 7:00 p.m., and locked at 7:15 p.m. It will be reopened as soon as I can get there after the Concert. Our Trinity Ambassadors (who will be out in the hallway) also have a key to that room, and can open the door if I am not available. However, neither John, Ron nor myself will be able to remain in the room to supervise purses during the time the door is actually unlocked.

Please bring your refreshments for intermission, and place them on the large table in the auditorium when you arrive. And, please don’t forget to take your plate/bowl back home with you. Bring FINGER FOODS ONLY – nothing requiring a fork or spoon to eat.

Thank you so much to all of you who have volunteered to help out. Together, we will all contribute to the huge success of our Concert. And, I know any choir member will be happy to pitch in and help out if any unexpected need arises. You’re great!!
