Hello my singing friends!

What’s that sound? Put your head on my beating heart!!

Only 2 sleeps until the Big Show! Don’t we sound great? Didn’t I tell you we would sound better all squished up together?

Be prepared to do one more rehearsal (warmup) on Saturday. Our ‘half-time show’ will be setting up at 5:30, so please arrive at 5:45 and be ready to start at 6. Don’t forget to bring finger food refreshments (details below), your binder and your beautiful smile!

CONCERT TICKETS ALMOST SOLD OUT! A few advance tickets are still available at Flour Barrel or through Barb Moldenhauer at

COSTUME: please wear a solid, bright coloured top (not black, not white, not patterned or multi-coloured), with dark bottoms and remember to wear comfortable shoes (you’ll be standing for two hours or more!) Here’s a picture of what we looked like last year:

REFRESHMENTS FOR INTERMISSION: Please bring one item for the refreshment table to share with each other and all our guests. 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 bring FINGER FOODS only – nothing requiring a fork or spoon to eat. Suggestions: squares / cookies / candies / any kind of loaf / tarts / cheese & crackers / veggies / fruit / bowl of potato chips, Doritos, etc.

OTHER CONCERT DETAILS: Please see Barb Moldenhauer’s email (January 17) for any other details relating to the concert, where to lock up your purse, etc.

POST CONCERT PARTY: Richard and Catherine Hamilton have graciously offered to host the after party at her home at 10 Linden Place. Snacks and bevvies are appreciated. Friends and family welcome.
