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

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.

 

CRS FORTE ON THE FOURTH – ONE DAY TO GO! – Monday 3rd Rehearsal

2 important reminders for you, Singers:

1.

Only one day to go until Forte on the Fourth! Please go to Coloradogives.org and make your pledge today!
