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!
