Practice at Delta United on March 10

Hey Gang:

We will raise our voices (in a good way) together at Delta United Church 9:45 a.m., 47 Ottawa Street South, this Saturday March 10th NOT at our usual HARRRP haunt. Give yourself extra time if you are unfamiliar with the area, building, and street-only parking opportunities.

Voice 101 – what’s that instrument called you all about? led by our tireless choir leader Sue, will be held at Delta United Church, Tuesday March 20th, at 7pm. $20 or sliding scale. Spots are limited but availability still exists – sign up at the front desk or send hamiltonsings.ca an email. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what’s actually going on inside that black box called you. I mean, why does it sometime feel that me, an alto, can only manage a bass pitch and other times I can sing like a sweet soprano? Why can I sometimes hit notes easily in a certain key and other times it feels like I’ve got a ligature around my neck? it can’t just be the weather… I’m keen to find out more on that, um, score.

Speaking of sweet sopranos, have you visited Hanna’s recent YouTube playlist? That lad from the Drakensberg Boy’s Choir doing the soprano part of Shosholoza made my heart ache – you gotta check it out. Here’s the link once more…

Saturday March 31st rehearsal is cancelled, go on an Easter egg hunt instead…

Saturday April 7th, annual General Meeting at 10 a.m. with rehearsal to follow. More details as the date draws near . . . . . .

Sunday April 29th is our end-of-term concert at Christ’s Church Cathedral. Attendance at the last 2 rehearsals prior to the concert date is mandatory for concert participation. Concert details and ticket information will be made available in the coming weeks. Make sure you let your extended family, neighbours, co-workers, and local shopkeepers know to set that date aside – da place will be jumpin’ and dee people too!

See y’all at Delta tomorrow.

Salut
