Extra Alto Rehearsals

Monday, October 11th, 2010

From Alto Section Leader Debbie:  First, my apologies if this arrives in your inbox and you are NOT singing
with the chorus this semester.  I modified last semester’s list and may have missed someone.  AND we miss you, of course.

Second, please mention this to fellow altos at the rehearsal on Saturday, 10/16, in case I inadvertently left someone OFF the alias.

If you are interested in attending an Alto sectional at Ellie’s house, please send her a message —  addresses in the forwarded message, below (ellie [at] briscoe [dot] com).  Specify which date you would be able to attend so she can get a count. I’m not sure I will be be there, so best to let Ellie know.

Ellie’s proposal:

Oct. 17, 7:30 pm (or else immediately after the Planets gig, since we’ll all be out and about)
Oct. 24, 2 – 4 pm.

After that, Mark’s Saturday rehearsal schedule kicks in.

She has a great set-up to sing along with the rehearsal CD, the recording and/or bang out notes on a keyboard.  Also, two very friendly cats, in case of allergies.
