Youth Choir – today!

Dear Parents,

If your child is attending today, here is the info again.

Room 112 (first floor) at the NDG Community Centre, 3757 Prud’homme, NDG. 


I can not be there as I have another meeting elsewhere the entire afternoon!

Please be on time and please be there to collect your child at 16:00. There are lots of cafés on Sherbrooke St or Monkland nearby.

Also, yesterday I was caught on the 20 East as the exit to the Décarie NORD, towards Laval is closed – Barrée! Therefore, you should take the exit, St Jacques & will  need to go north. Prudhomme is almost at Decarie. Please check it on google maps or put it in your GPS!

I would go north, meaning turn left at Cavendish (big intersection), then go right on Sherbrooke until Décarie (not 15 nord) but Décarie street. You can turn left at Cote St Antoine and the Community Centre is at the corner of Cote St Antoine & Prud’homme.

Thank you & for those going, enjoy! Andy is an inspiring musician and conductor!

Penni 🙂

Dear Parents,

I am looking for 3-4 chaperones for the day of the concert to ensure our choir as well as the others know where the washrooms are, just in case one of our choristers get ill…

We start at 13:00 and the concert will be over at about 17:15.

If I have two from 13:00-15:30 and then two from just before the concert and during the concert. – 15:30-17:15…

Please email me at:

Chers parents,

Je cherche des parents bénévoles pour avant et pendant le concert dimanche le 3 mai.

De 13:00-15:30 et de 15:30-17:15… Qui peux m’aider? Merci de m’écrire à:




Youth choir

What a great, focused rehearsal despite quite a few missing. You did well!

Look at the Mahler & memorize the Lily & the Rose, please.

Important info:

Sunday, April 26, as I mentioned last week, we have been invited to attend the Choeur des enfants de Montréal rehearsal to go through the Mahler with them from 15h-16h. This is NOT compulsary as it is late notice but if you wish to attend as it would help, here is the info:

15h-16h Sunday, April 26

NDG community centre, 3757 Prud’homme

Please let me know if you will go so I can give Andy an idea of how many choristers should be there.

I have another meeting that day at that time so will not be there myself therefore parents, you must be there on time to collect your child at 16h.

Do not hesitate to email me with any queries at:

The Mahler schedule is on last week’s post. If you haven’t done so, please look carefully. I have a letter for the schools regarding the Tuesday morning rehearsal.

Many thanks & Regards,
