Cookie Fest this week
In lieu of our regular rehearsal, the chorus will head to Iowa City for the annual Cookie Festival hosted by the Old Capitol Chorus. We’ll join a number of choruses from eastern Iowa at the event, set for 7 p.m. at the Robert A. Lee Community Recreation Center.
If you want to carpool, meet at the Scottish Rite parking lot at 6:10. Dress in blue Harmony Hawk shirt, black pants, black shoes.
If you are driving down separately the location is: Robert A Lee Community Rec Center located at 220 S. Gilbert St, Iowa City.
The chorus will be singing “Isn’t She Lovely”.
Thanks for a successful show!
Thank you to all the chorus for making the show last week a success. It will take a while to crunch all the numbers, but this much we know:
- Our patrons said that they enjoyed the show – music, script and performers were all well-recieved
- The chorus was able to learn some great new music and perform it well
- The afternoon performance time allowed an earlier afterglow with increased attendance
- The afterglow was a load of fun, especially for the 15 or so Prairie boys and their families
Some special thank yous:
- Wendell and Al for their leadership as show chairs.
- John and the music team for preparing the chorus.
- Greg for preparing the set and show direction.
- Bill Moss and all who sold ads and solicited donations. Bill again led the way in sales by a wide margin.
- A number of spouses and significant others who stepped up on show day to sell tickets, reserve seats, serve as ushers.
- Lee and Val Freie for organizing and hosting the afterglow.
- County Corridor and SwitchBack for performing at both the show and afterglow.
