Hi Everyone. This is an updated directors notes as of July 6th. Please read carefully.
This Thursday we will again spend time on our songs for July 10th and then work on Monday, monday and You’ve got a friend. And of course review Fame and our other two choreographed songs. Please take time during the week to review all the songs.
AND be prepared to sing Monday, Monday or another of our memorized pieces in a quartet. It is the best way to find out how much you know. Everyone should be able to do that before being in the show. Think how good we will be if everyone is that secure with the music. Wow.
About the singout on July 10th at Lake Street Church. 607 Lake Street in Evanston. (Not the lake street in Wilmette) We will meet at 9:30 to rehearse and warm up and find our places on the “risers”. Come in the Lake Street door, up a few stairs and turn to your right. As for Costumes. We were hoping to wear our black long sleeve blouse and black pants but I got to thinking that if it is 90 degrees, we will not only be hot but we will look hot to the congregation. (Most will be on Zoom so don’t expect a lot of people in the pews). Solid colored short sleeve blouses , pastels always a good choice will be better. We are singing Soon, Will the Circle and Lullaby of the leaves.
