Sunday, August 19 Concert – Linda will decide on arrival time for warm-ups based on what she feels it is important to review before performance. Stay tuned.
Afterglow Reception – Bring a plate of “finger food” to share and plan to stay at least for a little while after the concert. Bring your guests. Everyone is invited. It is a nice way to give a sense of closure to our season.
BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE CHURCH RETURN ALL ORGINAL MUSIC. There will be a milk crate and large canvas bag on a table downstairs. A smaller container will be there to collect your name tag so it will be ready and waiting for you next summer! If you have aggressively dark personal notes in your music it would be nice if you would do some erasing. If your notes are less intrusive, don’t bother. You don’t need to erase or return any pieces that are on copier paper.
Faure Requiem. No folder. If your copy has a bright sticker on the front place it on the inside of the cover.
** Intermission **
(Black folder for this half of the concert)
An American Hymn
Five Foot Two (Tenors and Basses)
Boogie Woogie (Sopranos and Altos)
All the Things You Are
Selections from Carousel
Everyone: Please no perfumes, or any other scented products including deodorants, after-shaves or hairspray
Comfortable shoes a must and conservative jewelry is fine (a small chain, beads, or pendant; the rings you regularly wear; but no large “statement pieces”) It's best to leave bracelets and pins at home.
Ensure your white blouse or shirt is truly white (it should match a piece of white copier paper)
Men: Black shoes, socks, pants, black belt and black bow tie with a white short-sleeved shirt. If it is very hot and humid often we declare it a “No-tie night” but plan to have a bow tie with you in case the weather cooperates.
Women: Black shoes (any closed-toe style including clogs, oxfords or all black canvas shoes are okay. Comfort is so important!); black stockings or knee-highs; ANKLE-LENGTH long black skirt or nice black pants (no jeans or tights and obviously no above-the-ankle pants such as capris!); with a white short-sleeved blouse.
