King Soopers Cards: As Amy mentioned at rehearsal before the concert, we no longer need to use the King Soopers cards that CRS has distributed. No more balance loading!  Here are instructions for you, and Amy will be talking more about it on Thursday:

Starting April 1, 2019 every time an enrolled member of your group shops at King Soopers using his or her enrolled King Soopers Loyalty Card, your organization will earn rewards. In addition, once a household member enrolls his or her card, all linked King Soopers Loyalty Cards within that household will begin earning funds for your organization.

We are listed as Colorado Repertory Singers

We can’t wait to sing with you all again,

Requiem follow-up: CDs still on sale & Photos requested by Kyle

We have a couple of Requiem follow-ups for you:

Here is the link and password you need to make a CD purchase:

https://crs.ticketleap.com/mozart-requiem-cd-recording/

Password: Mozart

 

Photos: a request from Kyle

Choir, if anyone’s guests got some good pictures during the concert last Friday I’d/we’d love to take a look (especially pictures of the whole stage).  Feel free to email pictures directly to Kyle (kjfleming2001@yahoo.com).  Thanks!

 

I hope you’ve recovered from the concert and are enjoying a week off!

Hi Singers,

Please take note of the following concert-related messages:

  1. Tickets! Tickets! Tickets!    We are just shy of 250 tickets for the Mozart. We need 900 to sellout, but we need to sell about 750 to make the house feel full – that’s 500 MORE tickets in the next week and a half! It’s time to dig in: share with your friends on social media, invite your colleagues, reach out to someone who needs to hear a spectacular performance next weekend. Don’t wait until the last minute – make sure that when your loved ones are making their plans for next weekend that Mozart is at the top of their list!
  2. CRS Volunteers Needed   Kristi still needs more of you to sign up to assist with certain tasks at our rehearsal and concert. Please click HERE to sign up for those posts. There will be a few additional positions that Kristi will discuss with individuals based on the final seating chart.
  3. CD recording (pre-orders) will be available for purchase in person at rehearsal. Cash or check only.
  4. Finally, lost property! Someone left a purple, wide-mouth Hydroflask at rehearsal last week. Kristi rescued it and will bring it to rehearsal this week.

We’ll see you all on Thursday – with music in black folders, please!
