GCS Weekly Warmup (010417)

Posted January 27, 2017

Hello my singing friends!

From now until the concert, our practices will go from 7:30 to 9:30. Lots of time to fine tune the details!

TONIGHT: 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! It’s amazing how it helps us sing better when we review some of the tougher parts. Please arrive a bit early. Altos downstairs. Tenors and basses upstairs in Paisley room, and Sopranos in the Sanctuary.

TONIGHT: CONCERT TICKETS AVAILABLE 7-7:30 BEFORE CHOIR!! Tickets are $10 each, $5 for children, $30 for families. Or email your order to Barb Moldenhauer at

Our poster is ready! Here is a jpg of the poster. Feel free to post it on FaceBook, in emails to your friends … everywhere!

CONCERT VOLUNTEERS: There still a few volunteer opportunities available! See Barb Moldenhauer for details. Barb will be looking for help organizing the next concert … so think about whether you might like to be an impresario!

CONCERT WARM UP: We will do a warm-up from 5:30 to 6:30. Please arrive at 5:15 to be ready to sing at 5:30.

REGISTRATION FOR NEXT SESSION FEB 1: SEEKING 3 AMBASSADORS: We still need some 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.

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!!
