Hi Singers,

We have several reminders for you below, but first here is a message from Kyle:

Choir, heartfelt thanks for the blood, sweat and tears you willingly poured into this past weekend’s holiday performances.  I couldn’t be more proud of the work you did on stage.  I hope you left the weekend feeling great about what we accomplished together…that includes surviving a bumpy Friday night concert, rising to a tremendous Saturday matinee and reaching down deep to last through a third Saturday evening performance.  All marks of a seasoned, committed ensemble!  More importantly, I hope you received the same kind of feedback I did that evidenced the impact the concert had on those who came to hear…that makes it all worth it!  See everyone soon.  With much gratitude, -Kyle

4. Forte on the Fourth: a message from Kim: Once again, thank you, CRS members, for your donations and demonstration of commitment to our choir and its mission on “Forte on the Fourth,” Colorado Gives Day. It was an amazing day from beginning to end…and a sign of great things to come! So, thank you!!

CRS FORTE ON THE FOURTH – IT’S TODAY!

Singers, Today is the day! Forte on the Fourth, a really important day to show our commitment to CRS!

Please go to Coloradogives.org, remembering Kyle’s words:

We give because  of what it does inside of us; our hearts need that. Donations of money are important from CRS membership, but more than that it’s the sense of commitment, of belonging to a choir that is a co-operative, a collaborative effort.  So the size of the donation is less important than your commitment: just what you can afford.
