President’s Message

Thursday Night‘s Rehearsal

We will hold our performance team meeting at 6:30. If you would like to be a part of the team, please come to the meeting. We will be discussing the potential dates and locations for our sing outs.

We will rehearse with the chorus until about 8:15. After that time, anyone who might be able to sing at the St. Patrick’s noon-time performance on June 6th is invited to stay and rehearse the songs that might be sung. If you are unable to be there, you can leave or stay and rehearse with us.

Guest Night

We will be holding a guest night on May 23. Please reach out to potential guests and invite them to the rehearsal. We will work on our Tribute to Heroes songs, plus something that the chorus may not be very familiar with, or may be new. We would love to have each person bring one guest. A flyer should be attached to this email.
