Message from the Music Director

Dear Chorale,


This past summer seems to have been particularly long, and I am so grateful for all of you who have signed up for the 23-24 season, our 52nd! We are only 4 days away from our first Halloween Concert rehearsal. Since all four pieces of the music are in PDF format, be sure you have either picked up or printed your own music, AND gotten markings from the Edit Masters on the website. Every singer must have their scores marked before the first rehearsal. (if you are singing with a tablet/iPad, feel free to download the edit masters to your device. Online, you will also find a brief info document for the concert, along with listening aids provided by the conductor. These listening materials will help tremendously in your preparation. For the first 10/9 rehearsal we will be covering everything in the concert. This concert is going to a lot of fun, and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Many thanks to the social committee led by Dawn Bauer for all the planning that goes into making it the wonderful event it has become known for.We have incredible new members joining us this year, and some returning as well. I truly cannot wait for Monday where we also get to meet our new Assistant Music Director, Caroline Kimrey Talbert.
