Almost Spring!!!

Good evening folks,

What a balmy, beautiful day! I think we are all ready to sing about Spring!!!

Such a fun rehearsal and party on Tuesday. Only had 4 people absent which made my heart flutter. I love when we are all together and striving for the same outcome. Wonderful work on the Mass. It will be so rewarding when we put the moving parts together/soloists, DCYC, orchestra and guest conductor!!

Some announcements:

Many of you have asked about DVD’s. They will be available within the next couple weeks. Suggested donation 15.00. You can purchase directly from me or Melissa. I can’t wait!!

Please put March 24, 3PM on your calendar. Our Chamber Choir will perform at Bethel as part of their 250th-anniversary celebration. No tickets required.

Our first soiree is scheduled for April 14th and will be an opportunity to introduce potential donors to our organization. Olivia Benalcazar was a Banghart Scholar for two years and is now singing in the Adoramus, an A cappella group from Johns Hopkins. Her family has offered their home as the site for an evening of “information and inspiration”. If you know of folks who may be interested in this opportunity, please contact Lynn Moore or me with information.

Good luck to the DCYC as they travel to Washington tomorrow for the Maryland Young Voices Festival. We are so proud of them!!!! And other news, 16 singers will be traveling to Cincinnati in June for a 4-day Choir festival. We are very excited for them as they embark on their first tour. AND Julie has not had her baby yet.

We will be starting to collect supplies for the backpack project. Stay tuned. Patty and Steph are in charge of this initiative.

The new website is coming along and your board and web committee have been working very hard. A special thanks to Don and Cris for their extensive work on making this a truly professional “window to the world” for the DCC organization.

Please contact me if you know of anyone who teaches sign language.

Refer to your syllabus often. We are on target.

May 3 7-9:30PM Rehearsal with Towson HS and soloists at Bethel.

Positively,

Marty
