If you can, please come to rehearse already at 12:30. This will give us an extra 30 minutes to practice together. If you can not, I’ll see you at 13:30!
Thanks for a focussed rehearsal yesterday. We have so many languages to go through – you are hard workers. Keep it up and see you on Saturday!
Parents & Choir members,
I have had to make adjustments to the schedule for Saturday so I can also rehearse with the Youth choir. They have the CBC McGill Gala coming up and need time to rehearse for this. I am sorry if your child in Youth choir and can not make it this Saturday but we have to go ahead as scheduling is quite difficult.
Here is the schedule for the day:
10:30 – 14:30
10:30 – 12:00 Children’s Choir (with a break)
12:30-12:50 walk outside if weather permits
13:00 – 14:00 rehearsal (with YC as of 13:30)
14:00 – mini-concert for parents and short period for questions
12:30 – 16:30 change of time!!!
12:30 – 13:00 rehearsal
13:30 – 14:30 rehearse with CC
14:30 – 16:30 rehearsal
(The YC will have a Friday evening rehearsal in early October as well! The date is to be determined.)
I have some mom’s bringing muffins, cookies and veggies & dip. The CC will have a snack in the morning and we can then have dessert after lunch. Please pack a lunch with a sandwich, a big water bottle, juice, a piece of fruit and you will get sweet stuff there. I believe a couple of moms volunteered to help out during lunchtime. That would be great as I need two adults to chaperone the children while I work with the youth choir from 12:30 – 13:00.
I have updated the calendar again so please have a look.
Thanks for your cooperation and please check this blog again by Friday as I may have added some information!
By the way, we will be in the Raymond building where we normally rehearse.
Many thanks & see you Saturday,
The Youth choir will start at 6:10 with the Children’s choir and finish at 8:10 p.m. However, the Children’s choir still rehearses at the same time – 5-6:30 p.m. This gives a short period to sing all together. Sorry if there was any confusion. See you later!
Dear parents, Thank you to those who have responded to my appeal for help on Saturday! I will take you up on your offers and contact you after tomorrow. You can also tell me what you could bring along or how else you could help tomorrow at choir.
One last thing, I am not receiving your responses directly to the blog unfortunately. Rather, Amy, the previous conductor is! This is a glitch that needs to be worked out. Until then, please contact me at: email@example.com
Hi all! Please don’t forget that we are aiming to start at 6:10 (6:15 at the latest) with the CC tomorrow. We will continue our own rehearsal until 8:15. Thanks and see you then!
Sophie – for her mentorship with a younger chorister
