Our Fun-Busy Calendar

posted Jan 19, 2016, 5:56 PM by OregonSpirit
As we enter the pre-contest season, and we have coaching and fundraisers and performances, it's important that you keep yourself well-informed so be sure to check the OSC website calendar so you know all the dates of the chorus bonus sessions, and other events and meetings.  For instance, we recently changed the March bonus session to Saturday, March 5th  (was March 12th) due to a schedule conflict for me.  We want everyone to attend these important rehearsals - they are more than just singing sessions, as we get important time to get better acquainted, have a little fun, and learn more about barbershop harmony.  Important dates (other than every Tuesday) to mark on your calendars now are:

  • Friday, February 12 - Valegrams Fundraiser (let me know if you haven't already)
  • Sunday, February 14 - Valegrams Fundraiser
  • Saturday, February 20 - all day coaching with Dede Nibler
  • Sunday, February 21 - all day with Dede Nibler
  • Tuesday, February 23 - coaching wrap-up with Dede Nibler
  • Saturday, March 5 - all day bonus session (and possibly perform at Majestic Theatre in Albany)
  • Thursday, March 17 - possibly perform for Elks on St. Patrick's Day (to be determined - as of this writing)
  • Saturday, April 2- all day coaching with Dede Nibler, evening Talent Show and Games!
  • Sunday, April 2- all day coaching with Dede Nibler
  • Tuesday, April 5 - coaching wrap-up with Dede Nibler
  • Saturday, April 30 - bonus session and Competition Send-Off Show
  • Thursday thru Sunday, May 12-15, Regional Competition & Convention, Reno, Nevada

We continue to have guests come through our doors and I love seeing how welcome you make them feel.  You all remember how it felt to visit the first time - you didn't know anyone, you weren't sure what you were getting into, you had no idea what the music or other people would be like.  So your warmth and openness is an important element to helping our guests feel comfortable so they'll return and hopefully join OSC.   Keep inviting women to visit - have a 20-second "elevator speech" ready to tell them about Oregon Spirit Chorus and let's all work towards our goal of 50 members.   As the staying goes...."They come for the music; they stay for the friendships."

Love - Kathy
