10/22 Rehearsal, Special Guest and MORE!

SPECIAL GUEST THIS THURSDAY!
Loren Squires, the director of the South Metro Chorale, will be coming to our rehearsal to assist in the men's sectional (Chuck is away this week)and to invite us on their choir tour to Croatia.

TARDIES AND ABSENCES:
I'm sorry to do it but we've got to crack down on tardies and absences. Please review the member's guide for the policy. Many people are not writing down if they are late. To clarify, if you come in after choir gets started (yes, even during prayer, spotlight, warm-ups, etc), you are late. Regarding absences, you may not miss more than 2 rehearsals per major concert unless approved by the director. If you have missed 2, you need to attend a make-up rehearsal.

MAKE-UP REHEARSAL:
Thursday, November 5th from 6:00 - 6:45 or 9:00 - 9:45 pm. If you have missed 2 rehearsals for ANY reason, you MUST be there.

MMC PHOTO DIRECTORY:
Brian Hewitt is putting a photo directory together. There are 3 ways you can give him a photo:
1. Send him an e-mail with a digital image - blhewitt@frontiernet.net
2. Bring a photo to practice with your name on the back and give it to him at choir practice.
3. See him before choir, during break or after practice and he will take a picture to put in the directory.

SAYING GOODBYE IS NEVER EASY:
After a wonderful couple of rehearsals with "This Christmastide" it is time to bid adieu until another year. Those of you who have been around for a while know that I like to have a surplus of music each semester. It's fun to sing through pieces and find the perfect ones for our choir. I think this one is perfect but given our time restraints, we won't be singing it this time around.

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE:
Sectionals
Women - Gloria
Men - Balulalow, Once in Royal David's City
Here We Come a-caroling
Dormi Jesu
Go Where I Send Thee
