NNV December 4 Rehearsal and Social is moving back on campus!
Our host for the rehearsal/social has contracted a stomach bug, so we are moving it back to campus. As it turns out, our rooms aren’t being used for exams after all (would’ve been nice if they’d told me that earlier….). SO we will meet at the usual time, usual place on campus, rehearsing until around 8:30 and then socializing in F210 with noms and drink. DO bring noms to contribute. Not full-on serve-on-a-plate buffet dinner mind you; just finger foods either savoury or sweet, so that we don’t need cutlery. We’ll provide coffee and juice, etc.
Our first rehearsal of 2019-2020 will be on September 4, 2019. Meet and greet with refreshments commences at 6:00 p.m., and the rehearsal begins at 7:00 p.m., going to 9:15ish. Optional social at Casey’s to follow. Online registration for returning members, as well as recruiting posters will be available soon. Looking forward to making music with all y’all again!
Online Registration is active and ready for registering. Returning members are encouraged to register online prior to rehearsal. New members are asked to wait until attending a full rehearsal before registering. Follow this link:

Music PDFs and Listening Files are now available on the Choristers’ Page. If people could have a listen and look/review through the Kol Nidre that would be hugely helpful. Listening files for Messiah are via 3 suggested websites that already have midi files up for each movement.
Messiah Scores: We will be using the Watkins-Shaw/Novello (orange) edition. If you have your own and would like to use it, please bring it to rehearsal.
Concert Audio and Video from our concert Northern Lights is now available. I’ve posted a link on our Choristers’ Page.
RECRUITING: I’m asking everyone to do some recruiting, both person-to-person, sharing on Facebook, and putting up posters. Basses are particularly needed, as that’s where we’ve had the most members graduate. I will have posters available hopefully by end of day tomorrow, and I’ll leave some on the table outside the music room, along with recruiting magnets, for people to pick up and post as you are able. I’ve attached digital posters and such to this email to be shared electronically. I will create an event on our FB Page, so please share that once it’s available. Word-of-mouth and digital word-of-mouth are our best recruiting tools!
We have a Facebook Group that is a great way to communicate with people within the choir. If you are on FB, please search and join, like it and link news to your own page.
We also have a public Facebook Page where we post concert announcements and information for the community:
