With all the activities and performances in December, I'm sure it will just whiz by and suddenly it will be January 2019!  We are "dark" (not rehearsing) for two weeks during the holidays (Dec 25 and Jan 1), so our first rehearsal will be the traditional first Saturday of January to get things rolling. >>> SATURDAY, JANUARY 5th, 9:00-5:00, at the Elks.

We have some performances to prepare for and with only 2.5 hours of rehearsal each week, this is our opportunity to go through all of the songs and start the process of refreshing/learning them.  If you don't already have copies of these in your folders, print and bring them with you, as well as recorders, color pencils/highlighters, lunch, and your great positive, can-do attitudes!  Here's what we'll go through (hint: there are a lot of repeats in this list so don't freak out):

    • I'll Be Seeing You -  music & tracks were sent to everyone on Nov 20th 
    • After I'm Gone - tempo/rhythms; we may have an updated visual plan
  • PITCHPIPERS SHOW on February 16
    • (at this writing, we are not yet confirmed, but I'm optimistic)
    • Peace on Earth
    • Sister Act
    • Sweet Dreams
    • Fun in Just One Lifetime
    • Somebody to Love
    • Happy Together
    • Who's Sorry Now
    • And So it Goes
    • After I'm Gone (if it's ready)
    • I'll Be Seeing You (if it's ready)
  • VALEGRAMS on February 14 
    • (Put your quartets together soon and start practicing these easy songs for a FUN day of $inging)
    • Let Me Call You Sweetheart
    • Now I Know Why
    • I Love You Truly
  • POPS CONCERT on May 18
    • (some of the same as Feb 16th gig)
      • Happy Together
      • Sweet Dreams
      • Somebody to Love
      • And So it Goes
      • Fun in Just One Lifetime (girls will sing Part 1; OSC sings Part 2)
    • Can't Buy Me Love
    • Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (maybe)
    • Harmonize the World/We're the Future (OSC and WGC together) - attached at the bottom of this article.
    • Happy Birthday - we're going to start singing this on 1st Tuesdays to celebrate birthdays of that month.
    • The Parting Glass - a pretty Celtic closer
    • How We Sang Today - so our new people will be familiar with it


MEMBERSHIP GROWTH is on the horizon and we need YOUR HELP.  We are planning a two-week membership campaign for January 8 and 15, so we'll talk about the schedule for those nights, as well as a refresher on what is expected of Riser Buddies. Your personal connection with new guests is a major factor in whether they return and consider joining OSC.  You'll be getting a flyer from Diane Watson, so be thinking of who you can send that to, where you can post/share it (salons, church bulletins, exercises facilities, etc.), and how you can make a renewed effort to grow the chorus.

We're going to have an awesome time of making music, performing, growing members, making new friends, geting coached, attending workshops, and more!
