    Here's the schedule of "volunteers" helping Lauren with the equipment set up and take down.

    Please coordinate within your foursome to ensure that there are 2 people there early (pre-small group) and 2 people staying after. If you will be away, please trade weeks with someone else.

    Lauren will continue to announce the next "volunteers" at choir but many of you have asked to know ahead of time so here you go...

    Our participation in the November 3rd Anniversary Celebration at St. Andrew's Church in Aurora was greatly appreciated and all of us there enjoyed it immensely. 

    We have another opportunity to sing for a community group that has supported us in the past and that we have personal connections to. 

    Please sign up (register) to sing at Trinity United Church in Newmarket on Saturday, December 1st, after dinner (TBA) in the Events section. 

    For several years in a row the YRCC performed for the Trinity United Church Gala Dinner which takes place every year on the first Saturday of December. We would sing 4 or 5 songs and then members of the church performed and they also do their own Christmas sing along. We weren't able to participate last year, but I would like us to go again this year. It's the evening before our big concert, so we'll have to be sure not to strain ourselves and to make sure we get enough sleep.

    We're well on our way with all of our pieces now. 
     
    I just announced that we're dropping Welcome, Welcome Winter for this year. We have to do it next year. It's an awesome song, and I'm disappointed that we're not able to sing it this winter, but we need to work on the stuff we have in the time that we have left. 

    Please review your music whenever you have a chance and make use of the sound recordings online in the Resources section of the Members-only content. (If you're encountering any challenges with downloading and creating song files or CD's please contact Trix for help. She's quite willing to walk you through the process.)

    If you miss a rehearsal, go to my blog to see what you missed. I've been posting what we do each week. Just look for the post titled with the date you missed.

    Last night Renate and Sapphire stayed late after rehearsal and recorded the small group music for the Website.  Please take a moment to check it out, it will help enormously in getting as much out of our short rehearsals as we can!

    Carol of the Bells is now uploaded as well.

    Also, they recorded the "tricky bit" in Hymn to Freedom, the "ahhhs".  You can download this and play it over and over again until you get it, or until your family begs you to turn it off!  LOL!

    The Executive have developed a set of guidelines for the Small Group performance participation.  We will be posting it here as soon as it is finalized. 

    The guidelines are designed to mitigate some of the challenges we've faced in the past, and ensure that everyone has an opportunity to enjoy the experience!

    Here is the final document:

    As is our custom, every 2nd Monday of the month during Choir Season is Coffee Night.  
    This Monday, September 10th is no exception.  We'll also be registering those who have not registered online, taking everyone's membership dues ($60.00), and distributing this season's new music and binders.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone there!  Keep singing!

    Our thanks go out to Ramzi, the General Manager at Staples in Newmarket.  He hooked us up with some wonderful new binders for the Choir's repertoire, and gave us a great price!  And thanks also to Kevin and Rose, who provided excellent customer service and support.
