Gala Information and Other Choir News

Our final performance of the season, the “Gala”, is fast approaching, coming up on April 26, 2018 at Eastview.  Please be aware of the following:

  • A Gala resource webpage is available for students. This contains detailed rehearsal schedules, costuming information, and videos to help with choreography practice.  Please see me for the private link.
  • Tickets for the Gala are now available for purchase for $10 each in the music office.  They may also be purchased at the door, but buying in advance is recommended to avoid line-ups.
  • Choir members are requested to have all Gala music memorized by Monday, April 23.
  • Students should arrive at 6:45pm on April 26. The show begins at 7:30pm.
  • Graduating students who are not in the grade 12 vocal class, and would like to sing with the graduating class, should attend rehearsals from 12:45-1:15pm on April 17 and 20. Those unable to make those times should speak to me.

Some other non-Gala items:

  • For those on the Montreal trip, please be reminded that there is a mandatory parent meeting on Tuesday, April 24 at 7:30pm in the Eastview library. Students are also encouraged to attend.
  • There has been a request from the community to have student performers and volunteers at the “Hawkestone Singers” talent show in the afternoon of Sunday, May 13 (Mother’s Day). Detailed information is available from me, but it could be an opportunity for students to gain volunteer hours and/or re-perform a Gala song.
  • After Gala, there will be one more rehearsal on April 30 for Montreal participants only.  Coming up in late May or early June: A year-end pizza lunch, council elections for next year, and auditions for next year.  Details to come.
