The registration deadline has come and gone, and as is our tradition, we extended it! The deadline is now Saturday, April 21st — if you hope to receive music before the actual event. After that time, until May 5th, the registration fee will be $105 to cover the five dollar cost of mailing your music. That all sounds pretty reasonable, right?
Paula Hebert is looking forward to working on this program with us and is bringing along at least 8 of her own choir. Summerside of PEI will arrive in full force to once again be a Side Choir, but under their new director, Margot Rejskind. The children of Digby Elementary have formed a choir to sing the Canadian and Acadian anthems with us to open the concert. This will be their first time ever in public!! We want to encourage these young people to make music for the rest of their lives. I’m saving the other Side Choir for the next email; Watch For It.
Just a reminder: Prepaying for lunch when you register for the hotel will make Saturday noon a lot easier on you. For $15.75 (all in), you will have a buffet, meaning no waiting to order, no desperation & despair before being served, and no discretely anxious waving for the bill. Highly recommended.
Wine can also be pre-purchased at the bar in the Lounge. (I have no idea how that will arrive at the right tables!)
While we already have some excellent donations from local artists, craftspeople, and merchants, it would be a special bonus if some of you were able to supply items specific to your towns. Any ideas? Mind you, we’re aiming at good value — or at least some “classy” good taste! Please give it some thought.
Any problems? Questions?

Now THAT was a great weekend! We learned so much, had a great time socializing and a peak experience during performance with our wonderful, sensitive, humourous director. I wonder if we might even have our party in the big "practice "room or even in the dining area downstairs so we don't harass the non- singers with our inevitable singsong.
