Update from COG (Construction Oversight Group)
Adult Choir is open to everyone. Rehearsals are Tuesdays, 7:30-9pm at the Sacred Heart Lower Level, with September 9 as our first Sunday singing. New members are still welcome!
Children’s Choir and Youth Choir
Children’s Choir (any and all grades 1-5) is on Mondays 4:00-4:45, starting Monday, September 10, in Sacred Heart’s Lower Level.
Youth Choir (any and all grades 6-12) is on Mondays 5:15-6:15, both starting on Monday September 10, in Sacred Heart’s Lower Level.
Choir Connection Time (LIMBO)
Note that this fall we’ll have a 30-minute Choir Connection Buffer 4:45-5:15, for which all choir kids are encouraged to be present. This is a time that we’ll bring together members of both choirs for such special activities as creating a choir covenant, working on solo and small group pieces, playing instruments, or just hanging out and playing games!
Come January, this connection time will be used for working on choruses for our operetta, Iolanthe, so it will be required of all operetta participants. Remember, in order to participate in the operetta, you need to be in Children’s or Youth Choir.
Please get in touch with Director of Music Vivian Montgomery if you’re interested in joining any choirs or if you have questions – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon for another big year of singing and playing!
