You can save tracks by right-clicking and then selecting “save link as”.

I’ll take this opportunity to make a few announcements here:

1) The Choir Calendar for 2013-2014 is up! Be sure to check it out and mark down the dates – of course, some details may change or be added, but this is the clearest picture we can give you right now. calendar 13-14

2) I have a few important documents to be translated over the summer. I would really appreciate it if there were a few volunteers out there (singers or parents) who would be willing to translate 2 pages of English into French for me. Please email choirs.conservatory@mcgill.ca if you’d be willing to help.

Hope you’re all having great summers!

and then this, from a post I mistakenly made to the ‘Youth of Note” page a few weeks ago…

2) Please make sure that you keep your new necklaces safe – they are now an official part of your uniform, and should not be worn outside of choir concerts. Only graduates of the choir may wear their necklaces in public.

3) If you did not return your music yesterday, please make sure you return it to the McGill Conservatory Office (downtown) before June 13th.

4) I hope to see each and every one of you back in choir next September. Please think about telling your friends who might be interested to come for an audition! Auditions will take place on Saturday, September 7th.

5) Also, if you are not returning to the choir next year, and you would like return your uniform  to the choir, you can contact Mme. Joubert (DCELJ@gmail.com/514-696-0063) to set up a time to take your uniform to her for inspection/return.

Hope you’re all having great summers!

Posponed next week

Hi to every one,

Meeting is posponed next week.  A few more Singers can be there. So :

  • Tuesday July 2nd
  • 8:08 pm
  • Raymond building main hall

I add to the previously mentioned topics this one :

  • the level of the choir (i.e. shall we refuse new auditioning choristers, based on their musical level or shall we give a chance to beginners to join our motivating and moving forward group?)

You’re welcome to write me your opinion.  I received a few, very interesting emails.  I’m glad to read you.

Special Meeting / Concert recording

Hi to all Singers,

Meeting

Next Tuesday will take place our special meeting to talk about how we’d like things tohappen for next year.

Here are a few hints about what could be discussed :

  • places to advertise and recruit new Singers
  • How many concerts a year?
  • Do we still want a Christmas concert?
  • Where should be held the concerts? (West Island or Downtown)
  • The price of the tickets
  • Creating a fund raising committee
    • suggest activities to raise funds
    • sponsoring?
    • selling a concert to an organization?
  • Creating a publicity committee (to take care of posters and tickets for our concerts)
  • Shall we create a repertoire committee?
  • Inscription fees
  • any ideas to get the choir farther

I’m interested in discussing these topics with all of you, and/or hearing from you through e-mail.  Please note down your ideas in the few next days to make sure we don’t loose any.

  • Tuesday June 25th
  • Raymond Building – Main Hall (our usual room won’t be available)
  • 8:08 pm

Hope to see you there!

Bonne écoute!

June Choir Party – Fête de la Chorale!!!

Done!

Un bravo à chacun de vous pour le concert de vendredi.  Bravo à notre duo de solistes et à Raphaël qui a relevé le défi avec brio,  in a very short notice!

Do you realize that you sang more than an hour of music, in 6 different laguages, representing 500 years of music, in so many different styles, demanding for various tones of voice and character and emotions to express; all in the same concert??!!!  Congrats!  It’s impressive.

I’m very proud of our first year of work together.
