Choir retreat

Just a reminder for choir officers and anyone else who signed up that retreat is this Saturday, May 3, from 9:00-12:00. We'll be talking about the future of the choir, working on plans for next year, and basically discussing everything. All very politely, of course. :)

We'll be at the LDS meetinghouse located at 1928 East Campus Drive at the U of U. There will be a continental breakfast at 8:30 and lunch at noon.

If you are planning on attending and have not yet RSVP'd to Jan, please do so immediately!

Elijah Invitation

Send it to all your friends! Send them here to buy tickets.

We're technologically savvy.

We're so up-to-date here at SLCA: we have a Facebook group. One more way to get the news out about our events to people who might not otherwise hear about them.

Check it out!

SCI early registration dates

The beginning of the Summer Choral Institute is closer than you think! The early registration date for sessions one and four is looming.

Session 1, The Lullaby of Broadway, runs June 12-14. Session 4, the Choral Masterworks session, begins June 10.

Register by May 12 to guarantee receipt of music before the sessions begin and to receive practice CDs. Remember, you can register online, print out a registration form to mail in, or use one of our wonderful brochures.

If you register after the early deadline, you can still get in, but you might not get your music until you come. The regular registration deadline for these sessions is June 5. Also, if you choose to, you can register at the door, but be prepared to add ten dollars to your total.

Hope to see you there!

Online RSVP Available

Hooray! The online RSVP and payment for the closing banquet is now up and running. You'll have to log in to the members only part of our website, then click the link for the banquet. After that, just follow the directions! It's as easy as pie. (Even though pie really isn't that easy, unless you buy Marie Callender's frozen pies, but that's a completely different topic.) Umm, easier than pie.

Alternatively, you can still RSVP and pay in person. See the previous post on this topic for details.

Either way, you need to RSVP and pay by May 6th.

Thanks for getting this working, Steve!

Closing Banquet RSVPs

I know some of you were wondering about RSVPing and paying for the closing event on May 13. Steve is working on getting the online RSVP/pay site working via our website, but after getting all the SCI stuff online, he deserves a bit of a break.

In the meantime, you may pay Debra Cope at rehearsal, and RSVP directly to Jan using the email address she printed on the invitations that were handed out last week.

If you didn't get an invitation, it goes something like this:

The Officers of
Salt Lake Choral Artists

SCI registration open!

Hooray! Thanks to Steve Witt, our webmaster, registration for the Summer Choral Institute is now available online!

Go to our homepage and click the "Summer Choral Institute 2008" link to get there. Or, if you must save yourself the extra click, just go right here.

According to the April newsletter, choir members will probably be getting some kind of discount code, so if you want to hold off on registering, do so. But don't hold off on sending the registration info to everyone you know and as many strangers as possible!

It looks to be a great summer of singing!
