CD Sales Tables Need Smiling Basses

We need people for 12:00pm-12:30pm Sunday, November 18th to staff the CD Sales tables, and we are also in need of staffers at all three times (9:00am-9:30am; 10:30am-11:00am, and; 12:00pm-12:30pm) on December 2nd and 16th. Please let David know if you would be willing to help out.  Thanks.


This Wednesday – Questions about Tour 2014

21 Oct

Question Time!

We will have the opportunity to ask Hugh Davies questions about Tour 2014 at rehearsal on October 24th.  Hugh is president of the company we have engaged to organize our tour.  ACFEA provided the same service for our successful 2007 Musical Mission Tour to France in 2007.

Hugh will present updates on their organizational work thusfar.  We will have a short video to highlight past Chancel Choir Tours.  John Brown will be available after rehearsal to help anyone who has questions about the use of Tour Notes.

And speaking of Tour Notes, there are changes and updates throughout, including a new dessert recipe under the “Interest Areas”, “Food” tab.  I’ve made it.  It is great!

TOUR UPDATE:  As of last week, we had over 80 people signed up for Tour 2014.  That is a good number that tracks closely the participation for our tour to France in 2007.  The France tour ultimately had over 100 travellers.  If you haven’t paid your $100 deposit yet, please do so as soon as possible.  The Tour Committee would like to be able to tell Hugh Davies how many people to plan for soon after his visit on October 24th.  The number going on the trip impacts hotel selection, concert venue options, restaurant possibilities, bus size, etc.  The Tour Committee appreciates your help

Important Reminders to Help Chancel Choir Run Smoothly

  • Please do not take your music folder home.  If you want to practice music at home, get a temporary folder from Clara Harris, choir librarian.  Clara is usually sitting at the table outside the choir room when you arrive.  If you are a new choir member, her picture is at the bottom of this post.
  • If you need music that is missing from your folder, please ask Clara Harris.  Do not take music from another choir member’s folder.
  • Return anthems we have sung after worship every Sunday, unless otherwise indicated.  If you know you will not be singing the next Sunday, please turn in your music following Wednesday rehearsal.
  • If you need a robe, please see Lora Oswalt, David Oswalt or Clara Harris.   Do not borrow another choir member’s robe.
  • If you have a question about any of these reminders, ask John Brown – Bass II Section Rep.
  • And most importantly, thanks for your help!
