Members-Only Portal on Website
As mentioned at last rehearsal, the choir website is now up and running and includes a "Members Only" section.
I suggest you familiarize yourselves with it since this is where important information will be archived, including updates from me (Notes), recordings from rehearsals and song information (Repertoire), important dates (Calendar), as well as a place where you can see who your fellow choristers are (Directory).
Website is: www.mondaynightchoir.com/membersonly
If you have any resources about singing, music or any info about the repertoire we are currently working on that you think might be useful to post in the members only portal, please send it along to Leah.
Also, please remember to send Leah your head shot photos: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mile End Mission Thanksgiving Benefit Dinner - Thurs., October 20
At last rehearsal, we confirmed that most choir members are able to do this concert. Thank you. I have since confirmed with Lou at the Mile End Mission. She has offered to arrange for a bus to take us to Ville St-Laurent. Pickup will be at 6pm at the Mile End Mission. We sing at 7pm.
She has requested the Beatles' "Because" (which we sang last year) as one of the two songs.
Could those of you that sang "Because," please bring your music this coming rehearsal and we will see if it will in fact be doable. Even if you are NOT singing at this event, can you bring your music and we will give it to new members who do not have it.
