From Dr. Whitmire: We added some clapping to Stomp Your Foot. It will save us time if you can check out Debbie’s notes and mark your music in advance. Thanks
From Debbie: I hope I have everything recorded correctly and listed so it is easy to understand. Information is below and in the attached word file. Hopefully, there won’t be total confusion at rehearsal tonight.
Fred & Peggy, I’ve copied my alto alias. Feel free to share with the rest of the chorus.
