Memorial Day celebrations actually begin Thursday night at our rehearsal. No better way to start a fun weekend.

Then there is a chance to sing outside with or without masks in my backyard at 1:30 Saturday May 29th.  I have enough chairs for 15 or so but if its easy to put a folding chair in your trunk it might be needed.  If it rains we will probably call it off.  My house isn’t made for social distancing at all.  

About 9 of you have indicated interest so far and I may have missed a few: Ilene, Ruthie, Mary, Kathy, Ann, Barbara, Beverly, Sharon and Janet.  My neighbors to the east will not be home and the ones to the west are real easy going.  Their boys send their baseballs into my yard on a daily basis so fair is fair.  Let me know if you plan to come and aren’t on the list.  It’s a big backyard.

Can’t wait to hear Aquarius with all the parts. It will be so different.  And we might try It don’t mean a thing.  Bring all of your music.

If you can’t come there will be other opportunities until we know what’s going on at St. Johns.  We can’t begin Thursday rehearsals until they open up.  

I’ll also try to have some smaller sectionals.  Stay tuned.

This Thursday we’ll review some of Mary Mauch’s warmups and continue our focus on breath support, relaxed jaw, tension free singing  and singing in the mask.  

Hopefully you are all close to submitting your video.  If you need help or more time, let me know.  We know that Gina will doing hers when she gets back from a week away so there is time.  

Rhythm work on Aquarius and Will the Circle are still on the agenda as well as reviews of all our opening pitches. 

Maybe we’ll start thinking about another new song.  TBA

See you Monday at the board meeting, Thursday at rehearsal and maybe Saturday at my house.
