Alumni Chorus Needs Singers!




As you can see the CVHS Alumni Chorale desperately needs singers for all parts but especially sopranos, tenors and bass/baritones. Contact information at the bottom

After hearing from our chorale members regarding their intentions to return for the spring season, I find we are losing 6 singers.

Unfortunately we are taking a big "hit" in the soprano section and will be down to 4 singers. This just won't work musically.

I suggest we take a hiatus from gathering during this coming spring season and plan to re-convene in September, 2010. We seem to have a larger attendance in the winter season. I think perhaps I need to shorten the length of program and rehearsal time for the Spring season next year so that you commit yourself to a shorter span of time

I do not make this suggestion lightly. I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to continue participating in my passion - choral conducting - with people I know and with whom I enjoy making music. Not many of my retired colleagues have this opportunity. I know you take the time, and some of you travel a great distance, to participate in the chorale because you love to sing. So, I will communicate with you later in the spring to see where we stand regarding coming together in September for the Christmas season.

I have spoken to Aki and will send her a check in the amount of $300.00 which is one month's salary. She hopes to be able to back with us in September. The rest of the choir funds will remain in the bank for use next season.

So - keep your Wednesday nights open for next year. In the meantime, look around and see if you can find more CV choral alums to join us. A healthy organization needs new blood in order to survive.

If you feel the need to get together we can always party at my house!

Shirley -- I'm truly disappointed we won't be singing this Spring and look forward to coming together again in September. I'm going to to contact Richard Adams and see if he can put an announcement on the CVHS Alumni Website soliciting new members. If he can do so, to whom should I have interested alumni submit their names?

Yes - I too am disappointed but the situation with the sopranos really having only 2 of the 4 really strong just wouldn't cut it.

Put in my phone # 818-845-2683 as a contact number. Tell Rich hello.
