From Dr. Whitmire: Welcome to our 7th rehearsal of 2017.

Thanks to the Women who had a great rehearsal on Saturday. This Saturday I see MEN at 11:00 am

Due to the Clean-up Day, no Saturday rehearsal on April 8.

Repertoire for our May 6 concert will be the following songs by Aaron Copland. We performed these pieces several years ago, so many of you already have the music. Please check to see if you have it so I can know how many copies to order. We’ll have a show of hand tonight.
