condition. Chorister families are responsible for replacing lost or damaged music.) Please provide a waterproof tote or backpack for transporting your child’s music binder (provided). Keep a sharpened pencil in the tote, and carry a reclosable water bottle separately.
Pre-Season Meeting: Before our first rehearsal I need to hear all new choristers to discover how I may best help their voices
develop. Please call me at 345-4552 to set up a 15 minute
appointment before joining the choir. Children need to come
prepared to sing “O Canada”, “Happy Birthday”, and a song of their choice (without any accompaniment). (Note: this is not an ‘audition’ – all enthusiastic singers will be accepted!)
