Of the “Three French Canadian Folksongs”, we’re doing only “A la Claire Fontaine”
Quit your jobs, housework, and hobbies; you have 12 days to be perfect! (for New People, that’s a joke, okay?) Some of you might not have received music yet. There were very few people from the Halifax area, so delivery didn’t seem an option. Mailing becomes expensive. We need to talk about increasing the cost or somehow paying the postage. $$$$
On the optimistic side, maybe we’ll make buckets of money on our Silent Auction Friday evening.
We have some super items & deals to offer, but always have room for more — especially if you can provide something unique to your area. Everything will be on display for bids during Harmony Harbour Wine, Cheese, and Music. So another thing you should pack would be money! (I imagine cheques or cute children held for ransom would also be acceptable.)
When you register for your room, that’s a good time to prepay for your Saturday lunch ($17.50). Even if you’re not staying at the Pines, if you want the buffet lunch, you can pre-pay at the registration desk. Friday supper is up to you; rehearsal starts at 7:00 — you’ll want to be early to find your assigned chair. (It’s special and just for you.)
At the risk of sounding like a “Personal” ad, we have an “older man” looking for a roommate. Any takers?
Remember, all black, neck to toes and below the elbow. Scarf or tie in all one colour, preferably bright. Black folder. No flashy jewelry (except for my tiara).
There’s no secure lock-up for purses or other valuables during the concert. I leave all my treasures in the car and attach the car key to one of the rings in my music folder. Some people, I’ve heard, have pockets. There’s also no convenient place to change clothes. Please wear your Concert Costume to the Sunday rehearsal. Water will be available to refill your bottles — oops! Bring a refillable water bottle. However, if you think you’ll get peckish before the concert, bring whatever non-messy snack you might enjoy.
Quite a few people stay Sunday night, too, to be part of the AfterGlow unplanned party. So talk to your friends — some of the best fun happens in the Lounge after supper Sunday.
Questions? email me and I’ll find the answer.
A note from our director - Paula
Le choeur des aboiteaux has a Google web site and I have downloaded the music for Digby High C’s. Anybody can go on our web site “Le Choeur des aboiteaux” and listen to the songs as long as they download “Notepad”. All they do is click on “répétitions” and scroll down to find their voice either in “midi” or “karaoke” files. https://sites.google.com/site/aboiteaux/
