From Dr. Whitmire

May 14th, 2010

(5/6/2010) Dear Singers- Carmina was a blast! I enjoyed every moment. That’s why we work so hardÑso that the concert can be a big payoff. You sounded fabulous! And what outstanding performances from Rex Gori and our very own Terri LaGoe and Estee Herndon.

What a great year this has been. It seems as if every concert has reached a new musical height: Brahms Requiem, Rutter Gloria, Italian Opera Choruses, Carmina Burana. Wow! No wonder we are exhausted.

We have enjoyed such a beautiful blend of veteran members of the chorus and the finest group of first-year members that we have ever had. I need every single one of you to be back in the Fall (and bring a friend who sings as well as you do). We have an equally exciting program: Handel’s Judas Maccabeus, Holst’s The Planets [women], Beethoven’s Ninth, Verdi Requiem and more.

I will send precise dates as the schedule firms up over the course of the summer. I will also send publisher information as I know many of you can’t wait to get started.

Don’t forget, the Annual Chorus Picnic is this Saturday at 3:00 pm at the Wulff’s. I hope to see you then.
