Hello everyone!  It's great to be back home from a wonderful vacation and I'm sure looking forward to seeing all of you soon!  July is going to be a really fun month for all of us with sectionals, small group coaching, the AIM weekend, and a fun gig at a winery.

I'll be working with the leads & baritones tonight (7/9) and the basses & tenors next Tuesday (7/16), from 6:30-8:30 both weeks.  My sincere hope is that everyone has spent some time learning the newest song!  I'd like to work on section unity and voice matching as much as possible.  We'll start off with a short vocal warmup together, then split into individual sections for awhile, then come back together for some duet work.  

It looks like we have 10 people registered for AIM at this time, but I'm pretty sure that several more of you are planning attend so try to register before Friday - that's the last chance to do it online; after that, you'll need to register upon arrival.  Also, the region needs more singers for Saturday's LAW School Chorus, so I hope you're all planning to participate in that fun and educational experience.  The song (Take My Sugar to Tea) is a fun and easy number and you should be familiar with it before you go, but we'll have brief sectionals on that Saturday morning of the weekend in case you need a little refresher.

I'll see some of you this Saturday at the Patton Winery, where we'll have an excellent opportunity to sing and tell women about Oregon Spirit Chorus.  I hope the group found time to rehearse the songs together so we can be great representatives of OSC!  If not, make sure you work on it before Saturday so you are totally confident and can thoroughly enjoy yourself.  I found a cute white top and pink earrings & necklace in Italy that I'm planning to wear - hopefully, my tan will last til then, too!

See you soon - I've missed all of you!

Love, Kathy
