KEY DATES for 2017

We've started some very ambitious and exciting plans for 2017 and will tell you lots more about them in January but I wanted to be sure you are all aware of key dates for 2017 so you can plan your vacations around them.  From a chorus perspective, the best two months for vacations are June (after attending the big Summer Spectacular regional event in Redding on June 9-11) and early August so we have everyone at rehearsals in that final month leading up to our show.

The two biggest events are Regional Convention/Competition on May 4-6 in Reno, and our A'Cappella Acadamy/Autumn A'Cappella Show on September 23 at Willamette University.  The workshop/show being in September means that we'll be learning new music and rehearsing throughout the summer.   Here are the key dates that I'll be expecting all voices on the risers (regional educational events are listed at the bottom).

7 -  Saturday Session, 9:00-4:00, start on new visual plan, review dreams, talk about plans
19 - Ryan Heller coaching (note: This is a Thursday)
24 - Lea Beverley coaching

9 - Ryan Heller coaching (this is a Thursday)
18 - Saturday Session, 9:00-4:00, Dede Nibler coaching

11 - Saturday Session, 9:00-4:00, Dede Nibler coaching
16 - Ryan Heller coaching (this is a Thursday)

8-9 - Advance Weekend, Lea Beverley coaching

4-6 - Regional Convention/Competition, Reno, NV

15- Tori Postma coaching, 9:00-4:00
22-23 - Oregon Days (Area School/LAW School)

23 - A'Cappella Acadamy (workshop) / Autumn A'Cappella (show)
           NOTE:  You are expected to the 3 final rehearsals leading up to the show

Jan 20-21:  AIM (Adventures in Music), Sacramento, CA.  Hope more OSC members will attend.
May 4-6:  Region 12 Convention/Competition, Reno, NV
May 16:  10th Anniversary Party / Installation Banquet (anniversary is actually May 7)
June 9-11:  Summer Spectacular: The Musical, Redding, CA.  Regional event that I am chairing; expecting about 500 from all over Region 12.
Sept 15-16:  AIM (Adventures in Music), Sacramento, CA.

As always, notify me (and your section leader) if you are going to miss a rehearsal. 

Love - Kathy
