Congratulations! Other notes

Congratulations on an OUTSTANDING performance last Friday night! It was soooooooo much fun! Thank you for your energy - it really helps!

"All, Your last concert was one of the most entertaining Janet and I have ever attended. Congratulations. Bruce Nelson"

Shortened Rehearsal Thursday
This week's rehearsal will go from 7:00-8:30 pm. You deserve a week off but I'm afraid we have some logistical things to work out this Thursday (where to stand - seating will be changed to reflect the SATB formation we had at the Crystal building, line up, sit, etc.) and there are some spots that could use some tweaking as this concert will be RECORDED.

We need your help with getting the word out about this week's concert. We expected the attendance at Minneapolis to be less than usual since it was the first time we performed there. Let's make sure we fill the seats at New Brighton as we usually do! Email, FB, Phone call, flyers are all great resources!

Recording our History
Bring your cameras Friday night! If any of you have pictures taken at the concerts and/or rehearsals, please send them to me and I'll post them.

It's FINALLY here!

Hooooraaayyyyyy! It's cool to see "1 day" on the countdown widget! Here are some notes for tonight:

  • REMEMBER: We're at the Crystal building (2801 Douglas Dr N, Crystal, MN) for rehearsal (7-9:30 pm).
  • Men, please go straight to the chapel to rehearse with Susan S. and Fred Larson (clarinet) on "The Pasture".
  • Women, please go to the RS room or another available room with piano to rehearse with Susan Quick. The runs on "Praise to the Lord" are still a bit messy. Please make them more light and bouncy.
  • Jon Kirkham is bringing the programs so we can look over them to see if any changes need to be made.
  • The set-up is quite different so we'll be changing the seating. Will have a new seating chart at rehearsal.
  • The first part of rehearsal, we'll be rehearsing certain spots in pieces. Then, we'll have a run-through (with hopefully minimal stopping/starting).
  • Call time is 6:00 pm - that means all responsibilities are taken care of BEFORE that time and you're up on the stand ready to go! :)

Thanks for your hard work! You guys ROCK!
