THIS WEEK (2-17)

posted Feb 13, 2011, 9:44 PM by Kathy Scheel
Happy Valentine's Day - I bet there will be a lot of wonderful stories shared about the Valegram experiences!  I'll be watching this website for posts about it and I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you who participated in this fundraising event in some way.  As you know, the new risers are very expensive and we need these fundraisers to replenish our chorus bank account! 

I just counted the rehearsals remaining until competition and there are just 14 scheduled rehearsals...2 more in February; 5 in March; 4 in April; and 3 in May - then we're in Spokane.  So you will each be doing your best to work on your music ... as if you auditioning for the chorus for the first time!  Put that kind of effort into all the songs and we'll be awesome! 

We scheduled a coaching session for this Thursday with Tim McCormic and Kim Chadwick, but Tim may be called out of town on business, so we may postpone that visit until next week.  Or Kim may stop by to check us out... we'll see. 

I'll put posts in the Sectionals area of this website, so be sure and check those each week.  I've added several documents in the vocal resources, the music library, and the Documents (pull-down), so check them out.   I've attached the Performance Readiness Checklist so be sure to use this tool to see how growth ...about every 2 weeks. 

This week, we'll continue to polish the contest songs, but I'd like to go thru some of the other songs in our repertoire.  So brush up your notes on "Who Will Buy", "Fun in Just One Lifetime", and "I Will Survive".

I sure hope everyone can get healthy soon!  It makes such a huge difference when you're not there.  We miss you, your voice, your body, your spirit, your humor, your very presence when you are not on the risers with us! 

Love - and have a great week!
