Thursday, August 29: Details for Dave Scott “Sing Along/Performance”

The following information is from Bob Kerdus: Sing for Dave Scott at Hallmar:

  • Where and When: Mercy Hospital—enter through the east door into the lobby. We will gather in the lobby. Dave’s wife, Linda, will be waiting for us.  Please arrive in the lobby no later than 6:10.
  • What to wear: Whatever you are planning on wearing to rehearsal later in the evening.
  • What will we sing?: Since this is more of a “sing along” for Dave (there will be other people there since we will be in their dining room), we will plan on doing mainly Polecats that Dave knows, like: My Wild Irish Rose, Down Our Way, Honey Little Eyes, Heart of my Heart, Sweet and Lovely. Possibly “God Bless America” and close with “Irish Blessing”.
  • Thanks again for doing this. Linda is very excited that we are doing this and says it will mean so much to Dave.
  • Contact Bob Kerdus with any questions: 319-350-7344

We are going to begin discussing the position that the Harmony Hawks are going to take in regards to Everyone in Harmony.

Feedback from the August 8 and 15 rehearsals

We would like to get your thoughts about the last two rehearsals with Old Capital Chorus. Please talk with one of the board members or music team members and tell them how you felt. We would like the positive and negative comments. Thank you to everyone who came to the rehearsals. There were about 40 people in attendance.

Chorus Leadership

Have you ever thought about being on the Harmony Hawks Board, or becoming a music leader? How about helping at events? We are looking for people who are interested in taking a leadership role in the chorus. If you have interest in a Board position, please talk with Cliff Newman. If you have other interests, please talk with Larry Hlavacek. We look forward to increasing your involvement!
