What is happening to summer
I hope everyone is experiencing a wonderful summer. I can't believe it's August already and the exhibition will soon be upon us.
For me, I have to hunker down and get some work done. I started out doing a lot in the rainy June, but since then, I allowed myself to be distracted, so I only worked at night and as a result, I running behind and will have to get to work if I'm going to be ready for September.
I'm sorry the video has disappeared from the web-site. I've sent a note to the distributor to see if there is a reason and to find out what can be done. I have a feeling that we will have to purchase the app is we want it to be more permanent.
As you can see from the home page, Registration will take place on Sept 5. Please bring any new members you may know and I will audition them. The big priority is to add men. We really can't get much further without a bigger sound in the male voices. Our current bass and tenor sections are giving their all, but 20 male voices balancing 70 female voices is just not a good balance. So I know and believe there are men out there that can be persuaded, we just have to work at it. We will have a few treats, with tea and coffee (or something else if you wish) - so plan to stay for a little while and visit.
Joan has been working very hard with booking the singouts. She tells me the people she contacted were very enthusiastic about having us back.
