It was nice to have you sing in the semi-circle today! I could hear and see all of you.

Here are a few reminders from our rehearsal:

  • Gifts is memorized! Now remember to make music - sing the text.

  • Stand tall and don't fidget when you are singing...this takes practice as well as your singing.

  • Good work on your theory! Please continue completing your assigned page(s).

  • Next week, we will sing with the Main and CYLS choirs for part of our rehearsal.

  • We have 3 regular rehearsals left - April 29, May 6, May 13th; our dress rehearsal is Friday May 24th from 5-6 and the CONCERT is on Saturday May 25th at 6:30 with a 5:30 call.
