Extended Rehearsals for both choirs tomorrow!

Dear All,

This is a reminder that the Children’s Choir will practice tomorrow from 5-7pm. We will spend 30-40 minutes practicing our pieces with the Youth Choir.

The Youth Choir rehearsal will also extend until 8:30 p.m.

At about 6:15, I will take a few minutes to introduce all parents who are at the church, either to drop off or pick up their children, to Félix, the new Choir Communications Person! He is wonderful and I am elated to have him on board! If you can not be there tomorrow, you will have the chance to meet him at our concert and then we will set up a parent meeting at the start of the January session.

If you are there to meet Félix at 6:15, you can stay and listen to our joint rehearsal until 7 pm when your child in CC will be finished. Please ensure they have a good, healthy snack tomorrow and a bottle of water. No chips, candy or juice, please!

Hoping to see many of you tomorrow!

Extra rehearsal – Sunday, Nov. 4

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that on Sunday we have an extra rehearsal (better now than closer to our December concert!) at the church.

Children’s Choir – 2:00 – 4:00

Youth Choir – 2:30 – 4:30

Youth choir members can come between 2:30 and 3 pm.

If your child can not attend, please email me so I know who will not be coming. I will not have the rehearsal if very few singers are there.

I hope nearly everyone can make it for at least part of the rehearsal!

Enjoy the weekend!

Many thanks,

Penni

Welcome back choir families! Choirs info!

Dear families and choir members,

I can not wait to see you and hear you after a long, yet warm and restful summer! I can not wait to hear about your summer and to hear your sweet voices!

Our first rehearsal is at the church on Monday, September 17.

Children’s Choir – 5-6:30 (still up to and including Grade 5)

Youth Choir – 6:15-8:15 (Grade 6 & up)

Please tell your friends and invite them to one of our first rehearsals. They can check us out! I heard some lovely voices at auditions today so let’s show them what we’ve got at our first rehearsal!

We have some nice concert proposals and collaborations for the coming year. A good mix of more serious choral music and art songs to spirituals, musical theatre and popular repertoire. But first, our annual Holiday concert!

I will attach a schedule soon and will give you a copy at the rehearsal.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. choirs@conservatory.mcgill.ca

Warm Regards,

Penni

 

No extra rehearsal tomorrow, Monday, June 18

Dear Parents and choristers,

I am sorry but I can not hold a rehearsal tomorrow as I had intended to do. I am too busy finishing off my year at school with reports and I had a small fall yesterday – I am okay – but I have a swollen foot!

We must begin some music in advance of next season so I will email to book something in late August or early September before we officially begin.

You and your kids have been amazing this year! Thank yo all for a wonderful musical season. I hope to see you all in the Fall!

Enjoy Father’s Day dads, and everyone, enjoy the summer! I will check my emails from time to time if you have any questions about next season and I will keep you updated on any info from McGill.
