Dates: Prospective & Certain

Hey there Gang,

I’d planned on constructing an-ever-so-organized calendar of dates for you to remember however we’re still waiting on about 1/3 of you on your availability for our end of term concert. Please send us an email in reply to these weighty questions:

#1. Are you available for our end of term performance on Sunday April 28th – Yes or No

#2. Are you available for our end of term performance on Sunday May 5th.   – Yes or No

#3. Are you available for dress rehearsal Saturday April 27th 9:45 am till noon – Yes or No

#4. Are you available for dress rehearsal Saturday April 27th 1:45 pm till 3:30 pm – Yes or No

#5. Are you available for dress rehearsal Saturday May 4th 9:45 am till noon – Yes of No

#6. Are you available for dress rehearsal Saturday May 4th 1:15 pm till 3:30 pm – Yes or No

Some dates that are certain:

This Saturday February 23rd is the last chance to get your blueberry orders in. Don’t be tardy and regret not getting your hands on bags and bags of these delicious blue babies. They really do stand out as being special – such depth of flavour in a little orb! Get em for yourself and everyone you know. $20/bag (cheep!), please pay in advance. Who knew fundraising for your choir could be so tasty?

Saturday March 2nd General Meeting and Blueberry delivery. We’ll elect your preferred nominee, peer at spreadsheets, sing some tunes, AND get our hands on those delicious blue babies mentioned above. Please bring some sort of insulated container for easy blueberry transport.

Saturday March 9th – we meet for practice at Delta United Church NOT HARRRP.

Sue and Bob have made voice tracks available on the Active Members page of hamiltonsings.ca of Stone and Sand. I’ve found it a great practice tool to listen to your own part using headphones while cupping your hands in front of your mouth. The sounds you make whip around your face into the headphones and once you have a unified sound – you’ve got it! Additionally, it can be fun to listen to the other parts while you attempt to sing yours – knowing where other people are can make your place more understandable – am I making any sense here? Hope so.

Here’s to you in song . . .
