Youth Choir CANCELLED today!

Hi YC families,

I am very sorry to do this to you on such short notice, but I have food poisoning and won’t be able to run rehearsals today!

See you all next week!

Just a quick note, too, to let you know that next week, I will be there for the whole rehearsal, but we will have our first audition for the new director, so someone else will be working with you for part of the rehearsal.

Thanks for your understanding.

I will also take this opportunity to say how EXTREMELY proud I was of you on Saturday – you did such a beautiful, focused, fantastically musical job! I thought it was a really stunning concert!

See you all next week!

Youth Choir – week of March 24

Thank you for your hard work and concentration this week – let’s try to keep the talking to a minimum next week! I feel like we crossed over the line between “collaboration” and “loss of rehearsal time” today….

perfect attendance today!

homework: music for Saturday!

details about Saturday:

17h45 – arrival at church IN CONCERT DRESS. Leave coats, boots etc. downstairs. Arrive quietly as there is a concert at 16h30 and they may just be winding up as we arrive!! We will arrive via the downstairs door – at the northwest corner of University and Ste-Catherine, take the mall door that leads down to Promenades le Cathedral, and there is a door into the basement/choir room beside the escalator. This is where we will enter, and leave our coats etc.

See you then!
