Autumn Details

Welcome back to YOUR choir – our main goals are to have fun while learning music from the many cultures who call Hamilton home.  We also learn about healthy singing AND develop our musical skills, and encourage experienced members to help new folks both with orientation AND their skills.  We endeavour to be a community together…

If you are receiving this email, but shouldn’t be on this list, please let us know – we’ll correct it as soon as possible.
Please bring your name badge back – a suggestion is to tie it into your folder at the end of each rehearsal and it will be there next week.  We’ll have new name tags for new members.
Please return any music from previous terms – a sorting bee will take place after this week’s rehearsal.
Finances – for those of you who are planning to pay for the term we’d like to have any fees in by the end of September – this helps the Board determine how much needs to be raised to cover our costs for the season.
“A Walk in the Park” – our annual walk-a-thon is on Sunday, October 14th at 1:00 p.m. in beautiful Gage Park.  It’s an easy and fun way to meet and get to know other choir members AND raise funds for your choir.  Pot luck munchies before/during/after!  Singing has been known to break out during this event 🎶
You can register to walk and pick up a sponsor sheet at rehearsal.
There is NO rehearsal Oct. 6th – Thanksgiving weekend🌽🍎!
Our winter concert is the evening of Dec. 1st… more details to come.
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
