Concert News

Hi Gang

Including tomorrow, we’ve got six more rehearsals until our Spring concert April 30th. In case you weren’t listening last week, our concert will be held at Christ’s Church Cathedral, 252 James Street North, at 3pm. Though my dog Rosie continues to be indifferent to my rendition of the alto part for Bella Ciao, my cat Biggles looks mildly amused whenever I attempt Farewell to Nova Scotia, so I think I’m making progress. Thank heavens for those web site voice files!

Sue will more than likely bring this up with you all tomorrow; however I would like to plant a seed of ambition in some keener’s head – want to be a concert manager? There are a number of things that need to be organized – tickets, promotion, hospitality, raffles, clean-up, etc. Most certainly, a number of people will volunteer for certain tasks but an organizational guru would be very useful here – just to keep things cohesive. Step up to it! You know who you are.

Though the formation of our not-for-profit corporation has seemed like the focus of our attention this term, I’m frequently reminded that the essence of our organization is a community of all sorts of people who become like-minded Saturday mornings when they gather together to sing. Our language is song, and in song, we tune up our spirits. Pure awesomeness.

Hugs
