Bravi tutti + info for both choirs

Bravo to all of the choir members who sang yesterday in our Spring Concert! I am so proud to be conducting these talented children and youth! They all sang beautifully, and with confidence and sincerity.

Thank you, parents, for your support.

Thank you + info, both choirs!

Dear Parents and Singers,

Thank you for yesterday’s extended rehearsals! We are getting our music ready for the concert! It is much appreciated. I know we are all busy this time of year!

I wanted to also clarify that there is a rehearsal next Monday, May 14!!! IT will be extended with the exact times as yesterday. This time, it is written in your child’s choir schedule.

The following week, May 21, there is no rehearsal due to the holiday.

So sorry for the confusion that I caused!

All choir members went home with info about the concert day. The concert is downtown! With the construction, please allow extra time to get there from the West Island. I will send this info by email closer to the date and post it here.

Thanks everyone! They are going to sound great!!!

Reminder- Extended rehearsal for both choirs!

Hi everyone,

This is to remind you that the Children’s Choir will rehearse tomorrow from 5-7!!

The Youth Choir will rehearse from 6-8:30! Please try to get them there for 6 pm, if at all possible! It is our only chance to put our joint music together! The following Monday is a holiday!

Please provide enough snacks – healthy ones – and a water bottle! They will be very hungry if they have not eaten since school.

They will receive a sheet with a reminder about the concert day, May 27, tomorrow at rehearsal. But please, watch this space as I will update here, and will send an email as well!

Many, many thanks!
