Getting Ready to Concertize

Greetings All

Tomorrow marks the first day of April and the end run towards the culmination of this term – our spring concert at Christ’s Church Cathedral, 3pm, Sunday April 30.

Wow. Can you feel that slight adrenaline rush of eager expectation? Speaking as the spawn of a long-line of introverts, my feelings tend to waver between terror and grim resignation when considering I might be the focus of someone’s attention. Thankfully I’ve got you great folks to drag me up there.

A cautionary note folks – participation in the concert requires attendance at the April 22nd and 29th rehearsals. In addition, you must have only missed a maximum of 5 rehearsals this term.

As announced last week, your fellow chorister Deanna King has graciously consented to oversee the workings of the concert. There are numerous details to attend to – ticketing, advertising, hospitality – and vee must have order! As Deanna comes to grips with all of this, she will need some help, and as we have all learned – many hands make light work. So feel free to offer whatever help you can in this estimable endeavor – your concert.

Spread the word to family, friends, neighbours, and other fortunate sorts about a cultural event that you, that’s right, you, have had a hand in creating. Hamilton Sings is, because you are. Pat yourself on the back, you deserve it.

Cheers

So glad for those who came out on Friday... Jeff Seffinga and Bob and potentially also Tibor Bocz stood up in the middle of Toreador as the singalong and I almost lost it from laughing. It was a lot of fun and you reallyencouraged everyone else to sing too.

Even though I gave you out a shout out after Butterfly, I keep receiving messages saying how magical it was for the audience to suddenly be singing all around them. It was really special to have you there. ^_^
