Thank you, Kerrin!

The Summer Choral Institute ended last weekend with a performance of the Requiems of John Rutter and Gabriel Faure. This last session concluded a summer full of music including everything from Broadway favorites to opera choruses to folk music.

There were many people involved in making SCI work this year who deserve thanks--volunteers at the registration desk and helping with refreshments, pianists, guest soloists, and more--but we need to give a huge thank you to Kerrin Gates, who is the SCI director. Kerrin worked ridiculously hard on this program for months, and without her hard work SCI would not have been the success it was.

Thank you for a great summer of singing, Kerrin! And thank you to everyone who participated and/or helped in any way. We look forward to next year!

Two weeks and counting!

The beginning of our 2008-2009 season is only two weeks away!

That's right, the first meeting for all members, whether new or returning, is on August 26 from 7:00-9:30 at Olympus High School. Don't miss it!

Our upcoming season is full of a great variety of music:
October: Multicultural music
December: Vaughan Williams' "Hodie"
February: Eastern European music
May: Navajo Oratorio

For more details about these concerts, visit our homepage, and start spreading the word now! It's sure to be a great year.

See you in two weeks!

Vocal Assessments

If you have not yet signed up for a vocal assessment time and you are planning on returning in the fall, contact Judy Prawitt as soon as possible to schedule a time before the season starts. This is something every choir member must participate in, so make sure you get signed up.

Also, if you are not planning on returning, contact Judy to let her know. If you know someone who is not returning, let them know they need to contact Judy as well.

Thank you for helping us keep our rosters current and our choir running smoothly!
