Hi Everyone – A few new announcements and since this past Monday’s rehearsal announcements were so jam packed, I wanted to recap a few items.  

See you Monday

  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas was handed out at the last rehearsal.  If you were absent, please make sure you secure a copy at the next rehearsal  
  • If you don’t already have a black binder large enough to fit the Rutter’s Gloria, there are many online options available to purchase folder including those with three rings, with strings, or a combination of both. 

Here are some online options if you need to order a folder or try any retail music store.
