From Dr. Whitmire: Dear Singers-
Bravo/a!! Wow! I had very high expectations for our concert on Sunday night. But you far surpassed them. What a sound! You were all “in the zone.” Pure magic.
Tickets – Please don’t let your friends and family miss this concert. Now that you know how wonderful it is, get busy spreading the word. Get your ticket money (cash or check made to WMPA) to your section leader tonight.
Tonight – Please be in Schlesinger at 6:20 pm so that we can find our places on the risers. Do you best to be on time, as late arrivals are very disruptive. We have only 20 minutes to rehearse. If you have Christmas paraphernalia (antlers, hats bells, etc) bring some tonight. We’ll keep it under wraps for the 2 Poulenc movements, then bring it out for the three carols.
Clydes – After the concert I’ll be stopping in at Clyde’s for a refreshing beverage. Please come share some holiday cheer.
Saturday 12/10 – No rehearsal
Sunday 12/11 – I can’t wait to hear your magnificent Poulenc Gloria at the Masonic Memorial.
Course Evaluations – I got this message saying that only 5% of you have done your course evaluation.
Please remind your students to complete their surveys by clicking the “Launch NOVA Course Evaluations” link in Blackboard. Completing the online surveys will only take a minimal amount of each student’s time (approximately 5-10 minutes). The survey period ends on December 11, 2016 11:59:00PM and cannot be reopened.
Students can receive a confirmation email by clicking the “completed” icon (checkmark in a green circle) beside the course name after completing the survey. The email containing a confirmation code will be delivered to the student’s school email address. These emails can only be generated while the survey session remains open.
Your online course evaluation results will be available for your review at a later date. We will email instructions for accessing your results at that time.
Registration – Please register for chorus now. If you have ever thought about taking another class with me, now is the time. Bring a friend with you. That will be even more fun.
