Well, dear choir families, we have made it through our first term. In these past few months we’ve seen new choristers settle in and find their voices, and experienced choristers honing their sweet tones. The final result: some wonderful holiday concerts, and lots of joy spread throughout the community!
This will be the last time you’ll be hearing from us before the new year, so before I get all sappy on you here are some important notes:
- Choir Camp Day is happening! Woohoo!!! Thanks to everyone who filled out the Doodle poll to let us know that your chorister would be there. Camp day will be on Saturday January 9th, at the Mimico Baptist church – save the date! For those of you who indicated that you intend to come but who have not given me your forms/money yet, please be sure to bring your completed form and cheque/cash to rehearsal on January 7th. Or you can drop it off to me over the holidays (PM me if you would like my address). If you haven’t told me that your chorister’s coming, but would like them to (because who wouldn’t??), please let me know via email before January 5th so that we can plan supplies. Need a new form? Find it here: https://mimicochildrenschoir.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/choir-camp-day-form-v2.pdf
- Also exciting is our fast-approaching special performance with the Etobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra on Sunday, February 7th. Before that performance we will have a mandatory rehearsal with the Orchestra on Wednesday, February 3rd. Please save both those dates, and stay tuned for details.
- Our first rehearsal for 2016 will be on Thursday January 7th, same bat time, same bat channel. Be there!
And with those last bits of information, we at the Mimico Children’s Choir wish to extend our very best wishes to you and your families over the holidays. It has been a wonderful experience working with your kids this year, and getting to know you better as well. We hope that your holidays are filled with peace and love, and that if you are struggling to find it, that you know that you are important to us and to many others out there.
With sincere thanks for a wonderful year,
Community Engagement Manager
