CRS: Rockies Facebook Post & 2018-2019 Calendar

Hi Singers,

It was great to see so many of you at the Rockies performance on Wednesday.  Kevin did a wonderful job of directing us in Kyle’s absence and we hope you and your friends and family enjoyed watching the Rockies obliterate the Diamondbacks afterwards.  You can’t beat a summer evening at the ballpark.

In case you haven’t seen it, Gina has posted a pre-performance photo of CRS on Facebook, so if you haven’t already – please tag yourselves!

Kristi has posted the 2018-2019 rehearsal/performance calendar in the sidebar of the website.  You can also click here to see it.

Enjoy this super-hot summer!  We’ll be in touch in the coming weeks about the 2018-2019 season.

Hi Singers!
I hope you all benefited from the long weekend.  We have various reminders and sign-ups for you, and a message from Amy about our July 11 Rockies performance for you:
1. Soprano/Tenor Re-Auditions
As Kyle mentioned in rehearsal last week, two sections will re-audition each year going forward. The point of auditions is to re-assess your vocals and re-affirm commitment, giving each singer the opportunity to meet with Kyle one-on-one.
This year, sopranos and tenors must re-audition. Auditions will be held on June 12-13 from 6-8 at BUMC. If you are unable to sign up on either date, please email Kyle and Kristi to schedule another time to audition.
Please sign up for an audition slot here.
2. Performance Week Logistics
Click here for information about our rehearsal on June 4, final rehearsal on June 7, and performance on June 8.
3. June 8 Concert Volunteers
Update: we still need 1 Ticket Taker (18+ years old) and 3 Ushers (12+ years old).
Volunteers get to see the concert for free!  Please sign them up here!
4. National Anthem at the Rockies, July 2018 
A message from Amy:
Howdy, ya’ll.  We are about 10 days from our last performance of the season, and just 6 weeks from the Rockies game.  I hope that now that school is out, everyone will be able to solidify their plans for the game.  You can get tickets at rehearsal from Stacy and Jim with cash or check at every rehearsal until our concert.  You can also buy tickets for the game on line with credit/debit through July 1.
We should look at the Rockies engagement as our first official fund raiser for the 2018-19 season, we will use these funds to pay administrative bills like insurance and copyright charges.  Let’s make the goal to match last year’s numbers… 180 tickets sold, $2000 in the coffers!  Thank you for your support!
— Amy
Please sign up here if you plan to sing the national anthem at the Rockies game.
As a reminder, every singer who plans to perform will also need to purchase a ticket.
Susan has some copies of the music that she will distribute at rehearsal in the next couple of weeks, and we’ll also post a copy on the website for you to print if you need a copy.
See you at rehearsal on Thursday!
Jo
