Hello my singing friends!

Only 5 sleeps until the Big Show!

Please bring to the church kitchen already prepared (cut) on your own plate or bowl from home, properly covered with plastic wrap. These can be immediately placed on the tables set up in the auditorium, ready for intermission. Of course, you will have to remember to take your plate/bowl back home after the concert.

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!!
