A little reminder, maybe more of a nudge. It is April 25th, and in less than 4 weeks it will be High Cs weekend. Registration has been unusually slow this year, and there’s still room for more choristers. Maybe the too-long Winter and totally strange Spring fooled some singers into thinking there was loads of time left. But I heard the peepers last weekend, so it really-really is Spring.
If you know anyone who would like to sing at High Cs, please encourage them. This year's program looks really good!
Last year we moved the concert to 4 pm, and we are doing the same this year because the audience loved it and filled the church.
Registration has fallen off from the Halifax area, one of the places that High Cs supports financially. If you are from Halifax and are coming to our weekend, thank you. If you haven't registered yet, we would encourage you to do so. If you don't plan on registering, we ask you to reconsider.
Thanks for your help.
In case you were wondering, the costs for this year are the same as last year. So while you get to eat at the Pines, we eat the inflation.
Thanks for reconsidering the High Cs weekend.
Actual information about the weekend will follow shortly. Meanwhile, music is being hand-delivered and mailed all during this week.
I’d be interested in knowing whether people practice with their regular choir, in separate groups of High Cs participants, all alone, or maybe not at all. Is having the music ahead of time truly helpful?
Keep looking for those all-one-colour scarves or ties (to wear for the concert, remember?)

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.
