Salut Sublime Singers All

Salut Sublime Singers All:

Just like your life outside the choir, the Hamilton Sings calendar of events keeps expanding like the universe. May Stephen Hawking rest in peace:

Saturday March 31st, rehearsal cancelled, prepare to eat too much while arguing politics with your annoying brother-in-law

April Tuesdays (3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th) choral workshop series, 7-9pm, Delta United Church, $80 or sliding scale, new songs with tips on healthy vocal function and improving music skills, sign up today! I attended the Voice 101 workshop this past Tuesday and now know why we “Ah” and “Hoo” for warmups, as well as other valuable insights into the instrument that’s been invisible to me my entire life. Terrifically informative.

Saturday April 7th, 10 a.m.,  Annual General Meeting (AGM) followed by our usual rehearsal until 12:30 pm, you’ll get to elect a couple of board members, peruse pieces of paper called minutes and by-laws, and other fun stuff.

Friday April 20th, evening, we’ve been invited to participate in a ticketed event called Cinquefoil at Church of St. John the Evangelist, Locke and Charlton, more details to follow however check out the following link for more info 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, we’ll need to assemble earlier than 3, and many of you will find yourselves involved in pre-concert preparations – more details to come as things take shape.

Friday June 15th, evening, Sidewalk Sounds on Concession, a street-performance opportunity with a whole bunch of fun involved, more on this shortly

The concert gift basket raffle themes will be selected by the 5 volunteers (Are you one of them? You’re making your mama proud….) this Saturday. Hanna and Sue have cooked up some themes based on this term’s music and will ask these esteemed volunteers to pick one out of a hat. Good luck all.

Your co-chorister Caroline would like to start up a Friday afternoon coffee social. Time and place to be determined. Interested? Contact carof@cogeco.ca
