CALL TIME for Concert Sunday October 8 - 2pm at Gardiner Spring!

(We have confirmed Gardiner Spring, the details are that we will be in the hall ONLY ON SUNDAY OCT 8 for the concert.  So  - because Sunday will be our only time in the hall - we  need to have a 2pm call for a brief warm-up/sound-check, since we would have no actual full rehearsal in the hall. 

We will also need volunteers (experience preferred) to assist with set-up. We will have access at 1pm. Let Dr Mann know if you can help.

We have added some additional learning resources/tracks, etc,below....in the meantime - go ahead an email Dr. Mann to let us know that you want to SING!

Below, you will find  links to pdf practice parts. (or if you already own copies - use them - if you do not  - please purchase your own as soon as possible) There are also a few videos (performances of the works). More resources will post as they are available.

To purchase a copy - you can use any of the links below. (I have seen pictures of two covers - one is red, the other is light colored - but they are actually the same inside....)
