Hello Youth Families,
Hope you had a great week! Here is your Monday email:
MARK YOUR CALENDARS: MOVIE NIGHT, Friday, February 22, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
We will be holding our second movie night of the year at Kingston Road United Church on Friday, February 22, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 and the movies will start to play at 7 p.m. Feel free to come and enjoy a movie, or drop the kids off and head out for a nice dinner. All proceeds will go towards our upcoming tour to Washington D.C. More details to come!
REMINDER TO PLEASE RETURN ALL YOUR MUSIC FROM LAST TERM AND WE WILL HAND OUT NEW MUSIC. PLEASE ALSO BRING IN YOUR SIGNED LETTER OF COMMITMENT IF YOU WERE CAST IN A SMALL, MEDIUM OR LARGE SIZED ROLE IN SHREK.
LINKS TO HELP WITH WEEKLY PREPARATION
Here are also some links to the three new pieces we are preparing for the Senior Treble Festival:
LAINOAK (fog) by David Azurza
GOZA MI CALIPSO A. Hernández (SSA choir, piano and percussion)
A PUPPET’S DREAM by Darius Lim ( CYPRESS )
It would be great if everyone could listen regularly to the tracks to help with preparation. Thank you!
CHANGE TO THE SCHEDULE FOR THIS WEEK
Please refer to the Shrek schedule posted to the website last week and sent to you in your email and note that there is a change: Instead of scene 4, we will rehearse Scene 7, so Donkey and Knights need to be prepared this week. Staging for scene 4 is rescheduled for January 31. I will also post this change to the website.
OUR NEW WEBSITE: www.tbcyc.com. Rather than sending you all emails every Monday with updates, our goal is to reduce our emails to about 2 per month and post updates to the new site. For information pertaining to Youth, please click on the “Members Only” section at the top of the landing page and select “Youth Choir Updates.” We will post updates weekly on Mondays, so please make a point of visiting the site weekly to see if there is anything new. The Members only section is password protected and the password to access it is “kingston”.
