Posted September 6, 2016

Hello my singing friends!

I know I am! It’s been a busy summer, with a few gorgeous lazy days thrown in. It was a good break and now I’m ready to sing! I hear Rachel has cooked up a really fun line-up of songs from the British Isles. Can’t wait!

We now have our complement of four Ambassadors, who will help new members get situated. Please help new members by introducing yourself. We want our new members to feel welcomed and included. If you see a new face, say hello! Get to know your neighbours in your section!

It’s always easier to start something new, and stay with it, if you have a buddy you can count on. Do you catch your friends singing? Invite them to try Guelph Community Singers with you!

We look forward to seeing you on September 7. In order to ensure that we have enough music and binders, we need to get a good sense of the group number as early as possible, so please make every effort to be there on September 7. Send me an email if you can’t make it and I’ll reserve a spot and binder for you.

Registration Opens:  September 7, 6:30PM at Trinity United Church, Balsam St. Entrance
Registration Closes:  September 21, 7:00PM

We’re pleased to report that we are NOT increasing the fees. Still the same low rates:
Regular: $90
Student: $60
Benefactor: $110*

*A GCS Benefactor membership rate of $110 includes your membership fees plus a donation to our “sponsor a member” fund for those facing financial difficulties.  The GCS is only as strong as its members so please consider strengthening our choir by giving someone the gift of music.
