Sundre Community Choir is preparing for its spring 2015 season

Sundre Community Choir is preparing for its spring 2015 season. The start date will be Tuesday nights beginning late February or early March, actual start date to be announced shortly via email.  As well, we expect to form a Handbell group for this session.

As we are expecting the spring sessions for choir and/or handbells to last about 10 weeks only, we will require a serious commitment to those 10 weeks.  Missing more than 2 practices will severely compromise your successful participation.

If you think you might be interested in this short-term commitment, we invite you to contact us atsundrecommunitychoir@gmail.com and ask to be added to our email list in order to get the updates.  Or you can call our Director Jean Dickman at 403-638-4828

We are a friendly and fun-loving group, which really enjoys the music we make.  For more information about our organization, find us on Facebook or see our webpage at http://sundrecommunitychoir.blogspot.ca/

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Please extend the invitation to your friends. Thanks.

"For my bell ringer friends in choir" ~a message from our wandering Glenn Kowalsky

This was in the musical instrument museum in Phoenix --

Glenn shared this on our Facebook page ---  https://www.facebook.com/groups/sundrecommunitychoir/

"The place was crazy!  Some of the weirdest, and I mean WEIRDEST instruments you could possibly imagine.  And in three hours I didn't even get through half of it.  Planning on a repeat run there.  Highly recommend if you are within ten country miles of Phoenix!  I got to play a theremin, if you can imagine!"

Glenn played a what???  What is a theremin? --- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theremin

Happy Birthday Jean!  

Marianne Bennett made this lovely cake.  Jean didn't want to cut into it, it was so beautiful.


Message from Jean:

Thank you to the choir for singing so well!  And thank you for the DVD player.  My son Jerry got me a new TV and set up both units for me.  The choir concert DVD's are magnificent on the big screen.  


Message from Kathleen:

The approval rating is high!  Thank you Sundre Community Choir for the carol singers!


Reminder:  Olds Community Chorus group concert is this Thursday at 7:30pm.  Are you planning on attending?  Maybe we could car pool?  Contact Pauline and we can get things set up.


Fun Facts:

Did you know we had 157 people at our concert at the Gospel Center?  And 123 people at the concert at the United Church concert!  

The concert at the Gospel center lasted 1 hour and 45 minutes!  You can watch the concert online at this link - http://sundrecommunitychoir.blogspot.ca/2013/12/sundre-community-choir-performing-at.html.


Mark your calendars:

-  There is no practice tonight (December 17).

-  Friday, December 20 we are performing for the seniors at the West Country Center (104 2 Ave NW) at 11:00am.  Remember to wear your black and white concert clothes.  Bring your choir binder.  Jean will provide us with some Christmas carol sheets.  And there is a lunch (free)!  See you there!


In January...

we have two practices, January 14 and 21 from 7:00 to 9:00pm, to prepare for our performance at the private birthday party on January 26th.  We will do a misture of Christmas songs and songs we know from previous concerts, like Grace and Danny Boy, maybe even Ave Verum (if you are there to practice!  LOL).  

Can I get a head count on who will be performing with us in January?  Just send me an email at sundrecommunitychoir@gmail.com.


Merry Christmas!
