Bulletin for 19 April 2019

 Hello Choir,

Here is the bulletin for Friday, 19 April – Good Friday.
At this stage it goes without saying:  everything.  Carlos focused yesterday in particular about on the need to focus and remain alert from the very beginning to the very end.
Reminders – again:
  • Next Thursday is the last rehearsal at the school before the concert.
  • The following week there are two rehearsals, both at the Chapel:  On Wednesday, 1 May and on Thursday, 2 May.
  • By next week all the music should be placed in black covers.
  • On the concert day, please bring a plate of yummy finger food.
  • If you are not singing in the May concert but hold any music, please contact Pam to arrange the return of the music:  pamelalewis44@gmail.com
Tickets and publicity:
42 tickets yet to be sold.  Great effort from all of us, so let’s just go this little extra and get rid of those 42.
New risers:
We are endeavouring to acquire new risers to replace the old, noisy, unstable ones we are using now.  Both the cost and logistics of new risers are a challenge.  There is a possibility that a sample risers will be available at the Chapel for next Wednesday’s rehearsal.
Bulk payment for rehearsals:
We are getting ready for the commencement of second term.  The option of fixing the term rehearsal in one payment is again not only available, but also, if possible encouraged.  There are 14 rehearsals next term.  At $8.00 each the cost is $112.  To pay, please transfer money electronically to:
CBA Account – The Manly Warringah Choir Inc.
BSB – 062 155
Account number – 1062 535
Please place your name on the deposit and send Margaret an email informing her that you paid (mstanley@bigpond.net.au)
If you are able to pay by money transfer, please place cash/cheque in an envelope with your name on it and give it to Margaret.
This bulk payment option is available only until the first week of rehearsals.  Once rehearsals start, you will have to pay on a weekly basis.
Vocal workshop:
A vocal production workshop, led by a Conservatorium of Music teacher is planned.  The tentative date is Sunday, 22 September in the afternoon.  Confirmation and more details – later.
Entertainment Books:
Still available from May.  For every book we purchase, the Choir gets $14.
Jenkin’s The Peacemaker:
This gorgeous piece will be performed in Port Macquarie on the June long weekend.  Details in our website.  I believe that they desperately need tenors and basses.
A long bulletin today – your Easter reading.
