Announcements for 2/20/17
I'm re sending Chris's email from last week because it includes tracks for
Te Deum. We worked very hard on this Friday night and Chris has asked that we review it using the tracks for tomorrow.
I also went over concert dress and promised to put it in writing for our new members. If you have any questions please feel free to ask your section leader or any board member.
For the ladies...ankle length black dress with long or 3/4 length sleeves or ankle length black skirt with long or 3/4 length sleeve blouse. Black hose, black shoes, and small tasteful jewelry.
For the men....Black tux or suit, white shirt with black bow tie. Black socks and black shoes.
Please keep in mind our advertising campaign ends on March 13. Your ads must be brought in for Dawn by that day to guarantee it will make it into the concert program.
Just so you will have plenty of notice the next Friday night practice will be on March 24....please be sure to mark your calendars. Once again, this is not an "extra" practice. As you are all aware, Chris makes schedules which pieces he wants to work on well in advance, everything is planned. I understand that people have family obligations, especially a holiday weekend. However, you miss a lot of music when you miss any practice but especially a Friday practice. It gives you 3 practices in 8 days and it makes a difference. Please make a huge effort to be there on March 24th.
See you tomorrow night.

From our Music Director:
Making weather judgement calls is never a fun task. Although the storm seems to have passed, I want people to feel safe as they dig out their cars and not worry about traveling in the ice and wind.
That being said, I am attaching practice tracks for "Te Deum" and "A boy and a girl". Please take some time this evening and before Friday to do a little independent work on these pieces. We will be spending a large portion of rehearsal on Friday on "Te Deum".
Stay safe and warm and I'll see you on Friday!
A boy and a girl (Click on your voice part with the Predominant title)
I am also attaching a great recording of "Ain't No Grave" for you to take a look at.
Have a Great Week!
