Creative Alto Ideas

Hi Y’all

How are the concert gift baskets going? Can’t speak for everyone but I was privy to some impressively creative ideas in the alto section last week. Just a reminder that I have been collecting wicker baskets over the past year and will bring them in for everyone’s use this Saturday. Please don’t buy any of that cheapo dollar store plastic stuff – it’ll add to the Pacific gyre dump sooner than you can say Trump’s a doofus.

Please take the time to organize your sheet music in the current concert order, preferably in a black, paper-noise reducing folder. Here’s the list (subject to change):

  1. Sho Sholosa
  2. 1,2,1,(fun rote exercise)
  3. Panther
  4. Minun Kultani Kaunas On
  5. Tourdion
  6. Ver Mee O
  7. The Trees of the Field
  8. Come, Love Away
  9. The Sun Comes (Morning Time)
  10. Matlakala
  11. Sumer Is Icumen In
  12. Sho Sholosa (reprise)

Here come’s a calendar again – the beat goes on:

Friday April 20th, evening,  Hamilton Sings! has been invited to perform at Cinquefoil at Church of St. John the Evangelist, Locke and Charlton, this is an ticketed evening event and details for those who have signed up will be emailed to you separately, in the meantime you can check it out at  http://www.rockonlocke.ca/cinquefoil1

Saturday April 28th, 9:00 a.m., concert dress rehearsal at Christ’s Church Cathedral on James North – no going to HARRP that day folks!

Sunday April 29th, 3pm, our term-end concert entitled “Fierce Light”, at Christ’s Church Cathedral on James Street North, $10 at the door (CASH please), $30 for a family of 3 or more, or sliding scale, invite your extended family, neighbourhood, and entire social circle if you wish. We’ll more than likely fill the house, so come early! This will also allow time for concert goers to invest in our soon to be constructed raffle baskets.

Friday June 15th, evening, Sidewalk Sounds on Concession, Andrea will contact everyone as arrangements develop.

Sorry to those counting on it however we’ve decided to postpone a blueberry order as we already have our hands full with everything else. You can only juggle so many obligations before one drops – and a bag of blueberries would make a heck of a mess. Heh.

And… this link https://www.thespec.com/events/8386465–fierce-light/ is for our Hamilton Spectator listing of our upcoming concert. Feel free to forward it to friend and foe alike.

See youse guys tomorrow.
