GCS Weekly Warm Up (111816)

Posted December 6, 2016

Hello my singing friends!

Wow that was a great practice! We are sounding very strong. Kudos to Rachel who has been encouraging us to review every week. The more we sing, the better we sound!

A favour: 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!!

Kristin Rowley (Soprano) has been learning drumming and will be performing at the Library on Dec. 17th. 1PM. Also, she will be doing Tai Chi as part of the Santa Clause Parade. She may also be doing her own mini performance, details to follow.

Storm Game December 28 – 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.
