Weekly Warmup (V151207)

Posted December 9, 2015

Hi my singing friends!

  • OSiem
  • Fare Thee Well Love
  • Sigale

Winter Cancellation Procedure

If it looks like the weather will be really bad and we will have to cancel, we will let you know via email by 5PM. So be sure to check your emails before you leave!

Desperately Seeking Tenors

While Ed and the other tenors are doing a fabulous job, we wish there were a few more! Do you know of any closet Pavarottis? Wrestle them out to a practice sometime and show them what fun we’re having!

Also Seeking Helpers for Performances!

Do you have a partner or friend who would enjoy selling 50/50 tickets, counting the cash and taking tickets at the door? We need four or five supporters who wouldn’t mind helping out.

Social Notes from Lorna:

Thanks to all 20 people who made it out for dinner last week! We had a great time and I got to talk to some singers I’d never met before. I’ll plan another dinner sometime in the new year.

Other suggestions for choir social stuff include karaoke night, a stitch and bitch / craft evening, an open mic, bowling, and the ever popular movies and concerts. If you like these ideas and / or have others, please let me know!

Best wishes!
