3. From Steve Soller: Veterans day at Good Samaritan Hospital, Lafayette

CRS!
We will be singing for the opening and the close of the Veterans Day Ceremony at Good Samaritan Hospital (GSMC) in Lafayette again this year. The Ceremony is from
2-3p on Friday, November 9th at GSMC (south side of Lafayette, just North of the Bypass). Singers will need to be here by 1:30p to warm up and and do a quick rehearsal prior to the event.
If you are available and interested in performing at this event, please email me directly at sstnt@juno.com or let me know at our next rehearsal on Oct 11th.  It was very moving and fulfilling last year, and I am certain it will  be so again this year. Thanks!     – Steve Soller
We’ll see you at Thursday’s rehearsal!

Hi Singers,

A message from Kyle for you all:

Choir – I hope everyone had a marvelous summer.  I am excited and eager to begin our 2018-2019 CRS season! Thanks, in advance, for making this coming Saturday’s retreat a priority (the conversations we have during these retreat gatherings as well as the musical rehearsal are hard to make-up, so to speak).  I know it is a wide swath of time during a busy Fall weekend.  Our initial season retreat is a little longer this year to give us some additional time for community building and musical rehearsal…we promise not to waste these precious minutes.  If you are unable to attend, I would ask you to let me know directly via email or text (303-641-0728).  See everyone soon!  -Kyle

The details for our Fall Retreat are above.  Please be sure to save the date if you haven’t already and sign up here to contribute to the Potluck lunch.

Music: Susan Powers will show you your music file on Saturday.  Music to print: please print And the Glory of the Lord.

As you enter, Camille Mandarino will show you the sign-in sheet for your section.

We look forward to seeing you all again on Saturday and welcoming our new members!

New CRS Outfits – Vote for your favorite!

Hi Singers,
Long time no weekly post!  I hope you’ve all had a great summer.
In preparation for the 2018-19 season, this is an opportunity to make your voice heard by voting for a new concert outfit.
Here is Kristi’s message:
In response to feedback we’ve heard from many members of CRS, the board is considering changing the solid black outfit option starting this season. After reviewing many vendors and ordering nine sample outfits, we’ve narrowed the search down to two options. For the final selection, we wanted to offer you the choir a chance to voice your opinion!
Please click here to view and learn about the two options and vote for your favorite NO LATER than August 31. Voting is not required of every member, only those who wish to voice their opinion! The board will make the final decision prior to our retreat on September 15, at which point we will begin taking size orders.
Please email Kristi at vp-of-performance@coloradorepertorysingers.org if you have any questions.
A quick reminder about when we meet for the new season: the CRS Fall Retreat is on Saturday September 15 from 9am-4pm.  Please save the date!
We’ll post and email more details about the retreat in the coming weeks and look forward to seeing you all there.

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.
