GCS Weekly Warm-up (V050216)

Posted May 2, 2016

Hi my singing friends!

It was great to see so many of you at the Riverrun on Saturday evening for the RCMPI presentation of ‘Into The Woods’. Were you singing along? Does the medley make more sense to you now? It sure helped me understand the musical better.

If you have ideas or suggestions for themes or songs you would like to propose for the choir, we’d love to hear them. Please research your idea on YouTube to be sure that there is already an SATB version of the piece you’re interested in, and send it to me. I can pass it along.

Little Shop of Horrors. Again and again. By Seymour, I think we’ve got it!

Starting this Wednesday our practices will go from 7:30 to 9:30. This Wednesday, each section will meet in different locations for a half hour to fine-tune some pieces, then we will all gather again in the Sanctuary for a full rehearsal. Sopranos will meet in the Sanctuary, altos in the piano parlour, basses and tenors in room next to it.

Session 2 Rehearsals:   Feb 3 – June 1
Break:                             March 16
Spring Concert:             June 4


Just a reminder: Some of our members are very sensitive to scents. Please don’t wear perfume or other strong scents when you come to choir practice. Thanks!
