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

Brenda Atkinson
